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

  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.
