Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    Cabbage: 1 small head, finely shredded
    Turmeric - 0.25 tsp (a pinch, really)
    Salt - .5 tsp
    Coconut (frozen, shredded) - 0.5 cup
    Cumin (powdered) - 1 tsp
    Canola oil: 2 tbsp
    Dried mustard seeds - 0.5 tsp

Directions

- Finely shred the cabbage, either by hand, cutting it in wedges first, or in a food processor - the food processor REALLY cuts down on the prep time.
- Sautee the cabbage in 1 tbsp oil with the turmeric and salt, until cabbage is tender and translucent. Sprinkle with water to help tenderize the cabbage and keep it moist, if you wish.
- Add in the coconut and cumin, and let it cook a little more until the coconut is thawed and blended in
- Meanwhile, heat the remaining spoonful of oil and, when hot, toss in the mustard seeds - let them heat until they pop.
- As soon as the mustard begins to pop, pour the oil/mustard mix into the pan full of cabbage and let cook for another minute.
- Serve hot with rice and parippu or any other curries.
- Makes 6 1-cup servings
