CABBAGE, CARROT, AND BEANS STIR FRY

CABBAGE, CARROT, AND BEANS STIR FRY

On some days, particularly after you have had rich food for days in a row, you would like to have some simple food. Today's recipe is perfect under these circumstances.! It is an easy to make stir fry using the commonly available veggies of cabbage, carrots and beans.

Tip: As the chopped cabbage looks voluminous but shrinks in volume as it gets cooked, be careful when you add salt. 

I like to serve this as a side dish with rice and rasam.




Ingredients:- 

  • Cabbage, 300 grams
  • Carrots, 100 grams or 2-3 small sized
  • French Beans, 50 grams
  • Onion, 1
  • Chana Dal, (Bengal Gram) 1 tsp
  • Mustard seeds, 1/2 tsp
  • Curry Leaves, a few
  • Green Chillies, 2
  • Oil, 2 tsp
  • Salt, to taste
Method:-

Wash and chop the cabbage, carrots, French Beans
Peel and chop the onion and finely chop the green chillies 
Heat oil in a thick bottomed kadhai and on medium heat add the mustard seeds
When it splutters, add the chana dal and saute till it changes colour
To this add the finely chopped green chillies and curry leaves and saute for a few seconds
Next add the chopped onion and fry till it becomes translucent
Now add the chopped cabbage, carrots and French Beans, and salt to taste
Sprinkle a little water and cook covered on medium heat stirring from time to time till the veggies get done
Make sure the cabbage gets cooked but remains crunchy 
Transfer to a serving bowl
Serve as a side dish with rice and rasam
