Winter is the best season when we are lucky to get and enjoy a wide variety of vegetables, and cabbage is one of them. In Gujarati aka 'Kobi' and in Hindi 'Patta Gobi'. We love cabbage and I do prepare so many dishes with it whether it's a Cabbage paratha or Cabbage Muthia, Cabbage No Sambharo or Cabbage soup, never get bored of using cabbage in my kitchen. But this simple and humble sabji I love the most and it appears now and then especially during the winter. When I am in a mood of eating authentic and rustic dishes, I love to eat this along with Bajra Na Rotla (millet flour flatbread) and garlic chutney, otherwise, it's a perfect with Gujarati Daal, Rice, and Roti to make a complete meal.

This recipe I learnt from my mum, it 's without onion and garlic, whenever she used to make I would stand next to her and watch her cutting green chillies and tomatoes just over the sabji, as far as I remember this is that sabji that I made for the first time ... and since then I loved cooking cabbage. While I was growing up in India, during winter every other day I used to buy cabbage as this dry sabji we used to pack in my brother's lunch box and at home, we could have daal or kadhi with it.

I must tell you this story regarding this sabji, oh yes my every recipe has it's own story .. after almost more than 22 years of my marriage, my brother told me that he always loved this sabji of mine. Whenever he used to take this sabji in his lunch box, all his colleagues used to enjoy this sabji with great passion  I asked him 'why didn't you tell me then? why it took you so long to tell me this. Read what he had to say about this "I did not tell you because I never wanted you to become big headed" :D

Well, if you guys make cabbage sabji using my recipe, please do come and tell me..No, I won't become big headed!
