  • 1 medium cabbage outer leaves removed, washed and shredded
  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil
  • 1 tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp Cumin seeds
  • Coriander
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • 1 inch Ginger minced
  • 1 large Onion sliced
  • 1/2 tbsp Garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 can diced fire roasted tomatoes (14oz)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro chopped


  • Heat oil in a pan and add the mustard and cumin seeds. Once they pop, add the garlic and ginger and cook until slightly soft (1-2 minutes)
  • Next, add the onion and cook until soft and translucent. Lastly, add the salt, pepper, turmeric, garam masala, and coriander, and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Now add the tomatoes and sugar to the pan. Mix well, cover and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Lastly, add the cabbage and cook until your liking. When you feel the cabbage is all done, boil off any excess water. Add additional seasoning if needed and top with cilantro.


If you don’t have spice seeds on hand, just use the powdered/ground versions and add them after the onions have cooked some.
