Cabbage stir fry and a tip to dieting ;) | Kukskitchen

A quick and easy healthy veggie side dish in Keralan style. It tastes lovely with rice or even roti. Ever since I heard about and tried the cabbage soup diet, I try to include cabbage in my weekly menu in one way or other.

Why cabbage?

100g of cabbage = 25 calories.

What more reason do you need my friends to use it whilst dieting? :) :) :)

More over, it has nutritional value as well. Dark green leafy cabbage is high in vitamin C as well as iron which make it a perfect food for anyone suffering from anemia as well as pregnant women due to its high folate content. Cabbage also contains beta-carotene and potassium. As a member of the brassica family, it also contains phyto-chemicals like glucosinolates which are proven to reduce cancer, especially lung cancer - MedIndia

Go girls - grab that cabbage in ur refrigerator and make a stir fry to enjoy!


Cabbage - 2 cups shredded
Onion - 1 thinly sliced
Green chilli - 1 slit down the middle
Coconut shredded - 1/4 cup
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Urad dal - 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Garlic paste - 1/2 tsp or more to taste
Salt to taste


- Heat oil in a pan and splutter mustard seeds, urad dal and curry leaves
- Add onion and saute till light brown
- Add shredded cabbage, mix well, stir in garlic paste, coconut, green chilli and salt and close with a lid. Let it simmer for about 5-8 minutes, stirring after every 2-3 minutes.

- Ready to eat!

 I'm Sherin, aka kukku. 

An excited mum, a  responsible doctor , a friend's friend , a thankful daughter, a thankful sister and a passionate singer,  an enthusiastic cook, food writer and food photographer . That's me in a nut shell.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
