    Yesterday, I cooked it using your simple recipe :) I did not have frozen peas, hing, and cilantro; however, it was still delicious. My wife and I enjoyed eating it with wheat roti. One thing I could improve upon next time is to cut or shred my cabbage as well as yours. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

    this tastes absolutely lovely, manjula. eating it now. savory and crunchy!
    i didn’t have any mustard seed and had to substitute fresh parsley–I still have some in my garden in rochester ny in november–for cilantro.
    beautiful blouse, btw.

    I love this recipe! When I cooked it the first time I had left overs but I kept going back to the kitchen to have a little extra spoonful. I can honestly say this is the first time I have craved a cabbage dish. I live in Ireland where cabbage is a very cheap winter vegetable so I am delighted to have found this recipe. I’ve been recommending your recipes to all my friends.
