Cabbage with Peas (Bund gobi aur matar) Review

4 stars (on a 5 star scale)
p. 140

Simple, easy to make, fast, and fairly good, or what I would imagine would be fairly good if it weren't slightly too spicy. I used one jalapeno chile, seeds and all. Next time, I should use less.

I only used 2/3rds of a cabbage--the rest of the cabbage wouldn't fit in my large frying pan. The cabbage shrunk substantially as it cooked.

Cutting cabbage into long strips was easy: simply slice it in one direction like an onion, then the layers peel apart easily into strips.

I don't understand why the recipe calls for a large quantity of oil. I used much less with no difficulty.
