Matar Cabbage (Cabbage with Peas)


by: Aarthi

Cabbage has lots of health benefits, it is good for people who are on a diet. Usually in Southern India, cabbage is cooked with lots of coconut in it, I hate that kind of dish. So I made this dish last week and when I tasted it it was so yummy and moreover it doesn't taste like cabbage.
