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

Cabbage - 2 cups shredded
Onion - 1 thinly sliced
Green chilli - 1 slit down the middle
