Green cabbage has a tightly packed head of leaves and this simple recipe really makes the most of its sweet, mild flavour. Lightly stir-frying the cabbage in turmeric, cumin, and fresh ginger brings an exotic Indian flavour, perfect as a light lunch or side.

  1. Heat the oil in a wok or a large frying pan. Add the ginger, garlic, onion, and a little seasoning, and then stir-fry over a medium heat for 8 minutes, or until softened and golden.
  2. Add the cumin, tumeric and mustard seeds, cook for 1 minute or until the mustard seeds start to pop. Add the cabbage, coconut and 1tbsp water and continue cooking for 5 minutes or until softened. Serve immediately.
