Cabbage Carrot Quick Stir Fry

In India people eat more of this kind of stir fry than raw salads, it is called sambharo in Gujarati. This is a quick stir fry and all veggies are still crunchy. It is sautéed using simple ingredients. This recipe is so simple yet very delicious. I am using cabbage, green pepper and carrot.. I also added jalapeno which gives this dish a spice kick 😋. You can add veggies of your choice like broccoli, cucumber, ivy gourd (tindora), etc. which can be eaten raw. This crunchy side dish complements our main meal like roti, curried vegetable, dal and rice. It’s nutritious, colourful, and perfect for lunch or dinner!

Cooking Time: 5 minutes

1 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp lemon juice

1. Chop all vegetables and keep them separate. Sprinkle little salt on shredded cabbage.

2. In a pan, heat 1 tbsp oil on medium heat. Add mustard and cumin seeds to the oil. When the seeds start to pop, add carrot, jalapeno and green pepper and saute for a minute.
