How to Make Cabbage with Cinnamon

  • Heat the oil over medium heat and fry the onions, green chillies and cinnamon sticks until the onions are soft (about 5 minutes).
  • Add the potatoes, stir-fry on low heat for 6-8 minutes. Then stir in the turmeric and chilli powder.
  • Add the water and bring it to boil. Cover the pan and simmer until the potatoes are half cooked (6-8 minutes).
  • Add the cabbage and salt, stir and mix well.
  • Lower the heat to minimum setting, cover the pan and cook until the vegetables are tender (cabbage should not be mushy).
  • The finished dish should be fairly moist but not runny. If there is too much liquid left in the pan, take the lid off and cook till the liquid evaporates.
  • Stir in the coriander leaves and remove the pan from heat.
