Fragrant Indian Cabbage

Fragrant Indian Cabbage

2 teaspoons brown mustard seed, dry roasted
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large cabbage, or 3 small ones (10 cups), sliced thin
1 piece (3" size) peeled and grated ginger
1 cup water
1 bunch (1 cup) fresh cilantro, sliced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cardamom

Heat a wok or heavy skillet. Add the mustard seeds. Cover and dry roast them for about 1 minute, until you hear them pop and they turn gray.

Add oil. Stir in the cabbage, water, and ginger. Saute 5 minutes until the cabbage turns bright green and the texture is crisp and tender.

Turn off heat. Mix in the other ingredients. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Serve warm.
