Indian Spiced Cabbage and Green Peas

| 1 Comment

I just harvested the first cabbage from my Square Foot Garden and I am so excited to make this yummy dish with it.  I really like cabbage and this particular recipe is one of those dishes where I feel like I could eat the whole platter!  The mix of veggies and spices really work well together to produce a somewhat addictive flavor.

I am posting a picture of my cabbage, which you may notice is just about as big as my dog!

Cabbage and Peas


  • 1 medium sized head of green cabbage
  • 1 1/4 cups frozen peas, thawed
  • 2 tbsp oil (I like coconut oil for this recipe)
  • 2 tsp whole cumin seeds
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/4 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 fresh hot pepper finely diced, such as serrano or jalapeno (seed and de-vein if you don't like it too hot!)
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp sugar (I like turbinado in this recipe)
  • 1 tsp garam masala (an Indian spice mix, look in the spice section at your grocery store or health food store)


  • Core the cabbage and shred finely. Preheat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. When the oil is hot, add the cumin seeds and bay leaves and then cook for a few seconds before adding the cabbage, peas, turmeric and cayenne. Stir well to mix thoroughly.
  • Cover the pan and reduce heat to simmer. Cook for 5 minutes so the vegetables remain a little crisp and then add the diced pepper, salt and sugar stirring well to mix.
  • Cover again and cook for 2 more minutes then remove from heat and stir in the garam masala.
  • Serve hot or at room temperature.
