Maharashtrian Spiced Cabbage

Mr Debs knocked this up last night to accompany the crispy beef. It's lovely and the cabbage really retains it's crunch.

Serves 4 ( 3 last night )

500g Green or white cabbage - finely shredded
2 Tbspn vegetable oil
1 1/2 Tspn Black mustard seeds
8-10 Curry leaves
1 1/2 Tspn Urad dal
1 Large onion finely sliced
1/2 Tspn ground turmeric
1 Tspn Ground cumin
50mls water
salt to taste
3 Tbspn fresh;y grated coconut ( optional )

Heat the oil in a wide pan over a medium heat.
Add the mustard seeds and when they pop tip in the curry leaves and urad dal.
When the dal begins to turn  light golden brown ( 2-3 minutes ) and onion and saute gently for 6-8 minutes
Add cabbage, turmeric, cumin, water and salt . If you are using coconut add it now.
Stir well and simmer for 5-7 minutes until cabbage is cooked but still has some bite.
Adjust seasoning and serve immediately.

Quick and very easy.
