Cabbage – Seitan’s Journey

  • Chopped cabbage to fill a large frying pan
  • 1 tsp whole cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp asafoetida powder
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 3 tsp paprika powder
  • 1-2 tsp black pepper
  • Olive oil to generously cover the pan. The cabbage should look properly oily when done.
  1. Chop the cabbage.
  2. Create the spice mix of asafoetida, curry, paprika and black pepper.
  3. Heat the oil in the frying pan.
  4. Add the cumin seeds when the oil is hot enough (small bubbles should form around the seeds, but the oil should not be smoking)
  5. When the seeds are dark brown (but not black!), add the spice mix and let it sizzle for a couple of seconds.
  6. Add cabbage and fry until done.
