Stir fried Green Cabbage with Fennel Seeds

Stir fried Green Cabbage with Fennel Seeds


  • 11/2 lbs green cabbage(half a large head)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds( I used black sesame seeds)
  • 1 medium-sized onion (7 oz), peeled, cut lengthwise into fine half rings
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/8-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala


Remove coarse outer leaves of the cabbage. Cut in half, lengthwise and then core the sections. Cut each section into very fine thin long shreds. Put the oil in a large non-stick pan and set over medium heat. When the oil is hot, put in the cumin, fennel and sesame seeds. As soon as the sesame seeds start to pop, add the onion. Stir and fry 3-4 minutes or until onion is browned a bit. Put in the cabbage. Stir and fry 5-6 minutes or until cabbage has browned somewhat. Add salt and cayenne. Turn down heat to medium-low, and cook, stirring now and then, for another 5-6 minutes or until onion is caramelized and soft. Add lemon juice and garam masala. Stir to mix. Serves 4-6.
