As a flavorful vegetarian side or meat-less main course, this vegan and gluten free Indian Curry Cabbage keeps dinner healthy and delicious!

Cabbage (Pata Gobi) Matar (Peas) Sabzi (or sabji) is very delicious, every-day meat-less main course in Indian Homes! and my home is not different! This versatile dish can be eaten as both: main course or as side with meat main course!

Main Course

My family love enjoying, an easy and lite Indian dinner with Cabbage and Peas stir-fry and side of whole wheat roti and yogurt (curd) raita.

This is a kind of meal which you can prepare under 30 minutes! Once masala (onion mixture and spices) forSabji are cooked, you just add cabbage and let it get little tender. While cabbage cooks, just warm the Roti and make Raita! In no time, a healthy dinner is ready to-be devoured!

Earlier I used cook cabbage (pata gobi) until it gets very soft and tender. This is actually the way I grew-up eating it. However, Vishal likes Matar Pata Gobi Ki Sabji, a little on crunchy side. So, these days I have started cooking it little less. Good for me, now it get's ready even quicker!

Traditionally, many people add tomatoes to this dish for some tang. But I have never added tomatoes. I think tomatoes make Pata Gobi very soggy and not-appealing.... Instead, I add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice just before finish-ing the cooking. This adds much needed tang and gives savory notes to Mata Pata Gobi Sabji!

Try it once! I'm sure will LOVE the sweet and tangy flavor. I promise!

Main Course Side:

This quick cabbage recipe is also works perfect for a main-course-side. Serve with grilled meat dinner to include a hearty serving of vegetables in your family's meal!

Savita's Notes:

If want to keep cabbage crunchy, don't cover the pot in step-4. Instead cook uncovered on medium high-heat for 5 minutes or until cabbage is just tender but still has bite! (this is my favorite non-traditional way of cooking, these days!)

    Nice recipe.How many cups of cabbage?

    Matar Pata Gobi Ki Sabji Recipe | (16)


    Hi Megha, I did not count number of cups and always eye ball it. but usually a medium cabbage is a medium bowl full. I would say, 5 cups of shredded cabbage. I hope it helps.

    Kobichi bhaaji, the perfect maharashtrian style... all we do is add fresh grated coconut on top... lovely clicks
