    A change of heart...

    It was time. I quietly walked into my beloved kitchen and looked around for a bit. "Hmmn... now what should I cook?", I thought. When a glance at the pantry didn't give me any inspiration, I decided to try the fridge. Rummaging around the crisper, I noticed him sitting queitly in the corner, neatly tucked away. "Okay, I guess your time has come, my friend.", said I, and he seemed to agree. Strange! But I still had no idea what do with him. I'm not too fond of eating cabbage cooked the Indian way. Never have been. The only reason I seem to buy this big round fellow, is when I begin to crave for a stir-fry. But today was definitely different. Yes siree! I was in no mood for a quick saute of assorted veggies. Nopes! Infact, what was that again, oh yes, the spicy bug bit me again. This time, I must so add, quite hard, since I willing to give Mr. Cabbage a try! I've always loved green peas (I buy the 2lb bag of frozen peas almost every 3 weeks!!), and seriously believe that have the ability to enhance the taste of anything!! I had this big green ball of leaves, my ever-growing-never-satisfied spice rack, and a cup of delicious frozen peas! The stage was all set and so was I! So take your seat folks, buckle up and enjoy the ride. The show is going to begin. Cabbage with Peas

    Ingredients: 2 cups sliced cabbage 1 cup frozen peas 1 small onion, thinly sliced 1 tomato, chopped 1/4 tsp red chili powder 1/4 tsp turmeric powder 1/2 tsp coriander powder 1/4 tsp garam masala 1 tbsp cumin seeds salt, to taste 1 tbsp cooking oil Method:

    Heat oil in a non-stick pan and saute cumin seeds till it starts to sizzle.

    Add onions and fry for a few minutes till it turns transparent. Add cabbage and fry for a few minutes till it tenderizes and gives out water.

    Add salt, red chili powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder and garam masala and fry for a few minutes till spices all blend in.

    Add chopped tomatoes and cover cook for 5-6 minutes. Stir in peas and let cook for another couple of minutes.

    Serve hot with warm rotis, or over a bed of rice with some Dal.

    Reminder: Don't forget to join in on the "From my Rasoi - Breakfast" event. Do feel free to download and post the banners on your site. Deadline - January 27, 2006!!

    Hey Meena... Like U.. i too am crazy abt peas... When I was a kid, I used to ask my mom to make aloo matar every second day.. well that stage is gone.. but I still use peas in bot veg & non-veg dishes.. It just makes the dish taste great.

    Hey I happen to like cabbage! Good recipe to add to my stock. I have found that the frozen peas here are too sweet. Is there any specific brand you buy? Or do you like the sweetness?

    Try the cabbage kootu sometime. I like the cabbage koottu than any other way...

    Here is the recipe:
    Ingredients:
    Jeera - 1/2 tsp
    Red chillies - 2 to 3
    Black Pepper - 10 corns
    Shredded coconut - a heaped spoonful
    Khas(a) Khas(a) - 1/2 tsp
    Rice - 1 tsp
    Toor dal - 3 to 4 tbsp
    Mint (coriander) - to garnish

    1) Cook the toor dal
    2) Shred/chop fine the cabbage, wash it and boil it with salt and water (using less water is very important or the koottu would turn watery. the consistency of the koottu is what makes it tasty). Also, draining excess water might take away all the good stuff.
    3) While the cabbage is boiling, dry roast the chillies,pepper, rice, khasa khasa, jeera and coconut (add finally or it gets burnt) and grind them
    4) When the cabbage is cooked, add the ground masala and after a few minutes the cooked dal
    5) Let it cook for a while till the masala smell goes away and switch it off
    6) Garnish with coriander.

    goes well with rice/sambhar rice/curd rice or even roti.

    "Lord, I have a problem!"
    "What's the problem, Eve?"
    "Lord, I know you've created me and have provided this beautiful garden and all of these wonderful animals and that hilarious comedy snake, but I'm just not happy."
    "Why is that, Eve?" came the reply from above.
    "Lord, I am lonely. And I'm sick to death of apples." "Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution. I shall create a man for you."
    "What's a 'man,' Lord?"
    "This man will be a flawed creature, with aggressive tendencies, an enormous ego and an inability to empathize or listen to you properly, he'll basically give you a hard time. He'll be bigger, faster, and more muscular than you. He'll be really good at fighting and kicking a ball about and hunting fleet-footed ruminants, But, he'll be pretty good in the sack."
    "I can put up with that," says Eve, with an ironically raised eyebrow.
    "Yeah well, he's better than a poke in the eye with a burnt stick. But, there is one condition."
    "What's that, Lord?"
    "You'll have to let him believe that I made him first."
    :D :D :D
