Perfect lighter dinner for summery days! I like the texture and flavour of red cabbage but you can alternate with white cabbage too!

  • 1 tablespoon crushed garlic
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger

  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 5 black peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  1. In a kadai/large saucepan, heat the oil on medium heat.
  2. Add the cumin seeds, mustard seeds and black peppercorns and after 2 minutes, add the onions and green chilli.
  3. Let this cook for around 6 minutes, and then add the garlic and ginger.
  4. After 2 minutes, add the red cabbage and mix well.
  5. Now add the chopped tomatoes and spices and stir everything together really well.

Hi, I’m Binny – a writer, dreamer, serial wanderluster and travel addict. I am originally from Kenya but now live in London. I set up this blog to share my experiences eating out as well as travelling.

I love packing my bags and going off on adventures as one of the best things about travelling is the ability to just get lost in it. To set aside the maps and itineraries and just see where the road takes you, learning and evolving and living in the moment along the way.

It’s my goal to get swept off my feet as often as possible.
