Add Jeera, Hing & Wait till the Seeds Splutter
Add Cabbage, Potatoes, Haldi, Dhaniya Powder, Salt & Stir
Keep it Covered & Cook on Low Flame
Additional Water may not be required as Cabbage needs to cook in its own Juices
Check to see when Potatoes are Tender & Vegetables become Dry, Add Garam Masala & Amchur Powder. Mix well
Turn the Flame High till all the Water is absorbed

Serve Hot with Phulka, Set Curd & Dal/Gravy Dish!

Adding Additional Water may change the Cooking Style of this Dry Vegetable Preparation, so it is advisable to let the Cabbage cook in its own Juices

Can Add 1 Tsp. of Mustard Seeds (Rai) if Cumin Seeds are not available
Juice of Half a Lemon may be added if Amchur Powder is not available for the Sourness in this Dish
Addition of Fresh/Frozen Green Peas would Boost the Nutritional Value of this Dish
