Today’s post is on simple and easy chutney, say, Cabbage Chutney. You might have heard about Cabbage Thoran / stir fried cabbage or Cabbage raitha.. Have you heard about a chutney making with cabbage? At least some of you might have got shocked hearing this right?. Yes, I know, but this recipe was totally new for me too till I got it from my friend Minaz Somani. Hearing this, I thought naturally coconut may be one of the ingredients. When she described the way it has to be done, I became so happy.. do you know the reason?  haha, it´s so easy to make!! Whenever I go for shopping, I try to avoid this vegetable even if I see fresh ones.. Normally I make stir fries or thoran (sautéed veg in a coarse paste of spicy coconut). Apart from that we were not so obsessed with this vegetable.

My Recipe Notes on Cabbage Chutney:

1. For sautéing cabbage you can add 1 tbsp. oil if it is required.
2. You can add tamarind and avoid adding tomatoes. In that case, take a small gooseberry volume of tamarind and soak it in hot water for about ten minutes, remove the strands and seeds and filter it.
3. You can add 1 tsp. peanuts too while sautéing and grinding.
4. You can skip seasoning this chutney after grinding, as we have sautéed everything in oil.
5. If you want to keep this chutney for long, pour in a thin layer of coconut oil on top and store in the air tight container.
