Cabbage Carrot Stir Fry Sabzi


The cabbage is one of the leafy vegetables and has long shelf life. Its a form of leafy bud, eaten all over the world. It is excellent as a muscle builder and some people use this as a cleanser. There are several varieties of cabbages exists. In germany we get different types of cabbages such as Weisskohl, Jaraomakohl, Spritzenkohl etc. They are different in size, shape and color of leaves, but from same family. This vegetable has high mineral and vitamin A content and alkaline salts. While cooking this vegetable, asafoetida (hing) needs to be added in order to increase digestion. In India, we cook cabbage in various forms. In this recipe blog, I have explained my homemade recipe procedure to make simple cabbage carrot curry or Gajar Patta-Gobi Sabji.
Cabbage Carrot Sabzi – Whenever I go to German supermarket, I search for some fresh vegetables at affordable cost. If don’t get anything good, then i buy cabbage and carrot. Because it has longer life compare to other fresh vegetables like Mushroom etc. If I have some vegetable with me, I don’t have to think so much to go to supermarket in the worst weather (i mean during winter season). In Germany we get three varieties of Cabbage namely Weiss kohl, jaraomakohl, spritzenkohl. Last weekend I cooked Jaromakohl (I do not know exact English name) with carrot in an Indian style. Yes it works. It came out very tasty and yummy. My friends liked a lot. Unlike normal cabbage, Jaromakohl leaves lot of water. So, when you cut half cabbage, you can get curry for three persons. It goes well with chapati or rice.
