“Well, this is my own creation and I am so proud to share it on Zaar. I just made this very easy and simple dish for lunch a few days back to serve with hot rotis right off the stove! I am so glad dad loved this and so did I. There is no dish like cabbage that I love and I guess it's in my genes, because my mom and my grandma love cabbage just as much as I do;-)Try this once, and I bet, you will be making this alot! Enjoy!”
