Add the tomatoes and allow them to cook and become mushy.

In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients listed under 'Spice Mix' and add 1/4 cup of water and mix well.

Add the spice mixture and salt into the cooked potatoes and mix well. Sprinkle sugar as well.

Add in the sliced cabbage and toss well so that the spice is evenly coated on all of the sliced cabbage.

Cover with a lid and allow the cabbage to absorb the flavors and cook through.

Remove the lid and adjust the flavors if needed and remove from heat.

Serve warm with rice /roti or as part of a meal.

  1. The Bangla Thali looks amazing , and that cabbage Sabzi looks absolutely delicious. The spice mix is simple but will add a wonderful flavour to the Sabzi.
