Cabbage potato vegetable ( patta gobi aloo sabzi )

I love this recipe! It can be made in 15 minutes and its delicious and healthy! :) I love the combination of this veggie with gujarati daal and rotis! YUM!

Ingredients:
1/2 cabbage finely shredded (I shred it in the food processor, its extremely quick!)
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
pinch of asafoetida
4-5 curry leaves
1 clove garlic minced
1 teaspoon ginger minced
1-2 green chillies minced
1 medium sized potato
1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon garam masala
pinch of chilli powder
1 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
salt to taste
1 small tomato chopped into tiny pieces
2 teaspoons of vegetable oil
finely chopped fresh cilantro to garnish

Method:

Peel the potato, dice it into small pieces, and microwave it in a dish for about 2 minutes. Saves the cooking time for the potatoes to soften!

In a large saucepan at medium heat, put the oil and let it heat for a couple minutes. Put in the asafoetida and the mustard seeds, and wait for it to splatter. Once is starts splattering, put in the curry leaves, and the garlic, ginger, chilli paste. Saute for a couple minutes, and then put in the potatoes, and wait for them to brown up on all sides. Then add the shredded cabbage, and saute it again for about 3 minutes till its well coated with the oil and the fresh spices. Put in the masalas and the tomato and saute it again for about 4 minutes. Dont overcook it!

Garnish it with the cilantro and its ready to eat!:)
