Zaiqa's Baghare Baingan & Sri's Cabbage Fry

I have a new favorite recipe for Baghare Baingan from Zaiqa... She had suggested I try it awhile ago and I'm more than happy I finally did! There were some perfect baby eggplants in the market, which is usually hard for me to find. Along with the baingan, Sri made his Cabbage Fry and it was awesome! Here's how he did it, without measurements, of course :)

For Cabbage Fry:

  • 1/2 head cabbage, chopped
  • vegetable oil
  • mustard seeds
  • turmeric powder
  • chili powder
  • salt
  • onions, quite a bit, chopped
  • frozen peas
Put the cut up cabbage on a plate and sprinkle with a bit of water and microwave for 3 -4 minutes. Heat oil in a large frying pan and throw in some mustard seeds, turmeric powder, chili powder and salt, wait for seeds to pop. Add onions and fry until onions caramelize. Add cabbage, little by little, and combine. Cook with a lid, stirring often, until cabbage starts to char. Add in some frozen peas and cook a few more minutes until peas are hot.
