Cabbage Sambharo

 Though the method of preparation is somewhat similar to making subzis, this is actually the recipe of a salad. Hence, make sure that cabbage remains crunchy as you stir fry quickly on a hot flame.

1 small cabbage head, roughly shredded
1/2 tsp ginger, roughly shredded

salt to taste

2 tbsp oil (or more!)
1 tsp mustard seeds
12 tsp asafoetida
1/2 tsp turmeric powder

1 lemon, freshly squeezed

1. Heat oil in a wide saucepan or kadai or a wok. Add spices. As they sizzle, add shredded ginger and cabbage.
2. Stir fry quickly on a high flame till the cabbage is coated with oil.
3. Add salt and switch off the gas.
4. Do not cover with a lid.
5. Squeeze some fresh lemon juice as the cabbage cools down.

Note -
1. This salad needs to be crunchy. Covering with a lid may make it mushy.
2. You can also add shredded carrots and bell peppers.
3. The traditional recipe needs more oil as the crunchy cabbage appears to be glistening with oil.
