Badhakopir Tak(sour) Dom ( Cabbage in tomato gravy)

Cabbage is a fall and winter vegetable in India. Back home, my mom used to make this cabbage dish in winter nights. Cabbage gives our body a warm feeling and the combination of tomato & cabbage is like heaven. This dish tastes little sour from the tomatoes, that's why the name is tak dom. 'Tak' in bengali means sour. Read the benefits and do's and don'ts of preparing & eating cabbage here.

Ingredients :
Cabbage Head : 1
Tomato : 2 (medium)
Potato : 2 (boiled & cut into cubes)
Green Chilli : 1 (slit into two)
Cumin seeds : 1 tsp.
Turmeric powder : 1 tsp.
Cumin powder : 1 tsp.
Chilli powder : 2 tsp.
Coriander powder : 1 tsp.
Oil : 2 tblsp.
Sugar : 1 tsp.
Salt to taste

Method :
  • Boil the potatoes and cut into medium size cubes. Cut cabbage into square like big chunks like this shown in the picture.
Microwave the cabbage in High for 4-5 minutes or until half done.
  • In a pan, heat oil, add cumin seeds and slitted green chilli. When cumin seeds start to crackle, add tomatoes. In medium flame, stir until tomatoes get soft. Then add all the powdered spices and sugar and with 2 tblsp. water mix well and cook until oil seperates the masala.
  • Then add boiled potatoes and cabbage. Mix well with the masala paste and pour 1 cup water. (note: it's not a dry preperation, there should be little curry left).
  • When the vegetables are just done and the gravy thickens, take the pan out off heat.
Serve hot with chapati or plain white rice. It tastes best when hot, off course.
So, this winter treat is on the way to Winter Treat Event by Trupti of Recipe Center.
