  1. I was very excited when I saw this recipe as it reminded me of something I used to order at a downtown NYC lunch spot (which has unfortunately since changed owner and menu.) Anyway I was very happy with how it came out, slightly sweet and rather spicy (I used hot chilli powder) and really satisfying. It is a good midweek dish because the only preparation is to slice a cabbage. Thanks!

  2. Thank you for your comment. We are glad you liked the dish. To make the prep time less time consuming you could also use coleslaw to made this dish. Do try out our other recipes.

  3. My coworker got me hooked on “cabbage and peas”. Since she is Indian, she’s familiar with these spices and cooks without recipes. For me, it’s necessary to have at least a basic recipe with which to start. This recipe is PERFECT!!! I did find myself adding a bit of ground cumin because I was being teased with the taste from the seeds. Excellent flavor. Thanks so much for posting this!!

  4. Glad that you liked it. Yes, adding little ground cumin should be interesting. It’s always nice to experiment and add your own flavors to it. Thank you for your comments.
