This Chilli Cabbage and Potato Fry is a simple dish, using just chilli flakes to give it a kick. Cabbage is often overlooked but it makes a great accompaniment to spicy dishes. This is a Mauritian version of a popular Gujerati dish.
What you need… • 3 Tablespoons oil • 1 onion, finely chopped • 1.5 chilli flakes • 2 medium-size potato cut into small 1cm chunks • half a cabbage, shredded • 100ml water (about half a cup) • 1 tomato, finely chopped • salt, to taste
How to make it… 1. Heat the oil to a medium heat and fry the onion for 4 minutes. 2. Add half the chilli flakes and potato and stir fry until the potato chunks are starting to brown (about 3 minutes). 3. Add the cabbage and the water, cover the pan, and cook until the cabbage is soft (about 10 minutes). 4. Add the tomato and salt, mix well, and cook for 3 minutes. 5. Serve, with the rest of the chilli flakes sprinkled on the top.
