Cabbage, Potato and Onion subzi Recipe

This Cabbage, Potato and Onion Subzi is a family favourite. Tastes absolutely divine served with Rotis or Chapatis just off the flame. This is a preparation that I learnt from my friend Meena Damania and fond memories of preparing it in the early days of my marriage are associated with it.

Ingredients :

400 gms cabbage chopped
2 large potatoes sliced
2 large onions sliced
2 large tomatoes chopped
2 tbsps coriander powder
1 tsp jeera powder
2 tsps chilly powder
A pinch of turmeric
1 tsp sugar
Salt.
Coriander leaves

For the seasoning
2 tbsps ghee/ clarified butter
2 tbsps refined oil
1 tbsp jeera/ cumin seeds

Method:

Heat the ghee and oil mixture in a pan . Add the jeera. After it splutters add the sliced onions and potatoes together and roast with a little salt till transparent. Add the coriander, jeera, chilly and haldi powder. Toss well. Add the cabbage and a small glass of water and allow to cook. When cabbage is half done add the chopped tomatoes and sugar and cook till done. Garnish with coriander leaves.

Note: addition of ghee in the seasoning adds to the taste so please don’t skip it.

Chinese potato Saung

Saung is a spicy preparation and can be made from a variety of vegetables. Today I decided to make one from the Chinese potatoes which are in season. Goes well with Dal, Rice, Roti or even with Curd rice.

Ingredients :
500 gms Chinese potato
5 large onions sliced
5 tsps chilly powder
3 tomatoes chopped fine
1 tbsp tamarind paste
Salt
5 tbsps Coconut oil

Method:

Pressure cook the Chinese potato to two whistles. Drain and peel them. Heat the coconut oil in a pan. Add the sliced onions and roast them on a high flame till half are browned and the other half translucent. Add the chilly powder , toss and drop in the tomatoes. Saute for a couple of minutes. Drop in the Cooked Chinese potatoes, salt, tamarind paste and 750 ml or 3 glasses of water. After the Saung starts boiling, lower flame and simmer for ten minutes till the Saung acquires a semi solid consistency. Switch off and keep aside for about fifteen minutes for the flavours to infuse.
