Cabbage bhaji/ Kobichi bhaji

I some how don't like cabbage in a bhaji form but hubby does and also due to the nutritional benefits I do make it sometimes. Here is the simple recipe.

Cabbage chopped - 2 cups
onion chopped - 1 large
tomato chopped - 1medium
ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
red chilli powder - 1 to 2 tsp
turmeric - 1/2 tsp
garam masala powder - 1 tsp
dhaniya jeera powder - 1 to 2 tsp
Goda masala - 2 tsp optional
salt - to taste
curry leaves - 1 spring
asafoetida - a pinch
oil - for tempering

Heat oil in a kadhai add curry leaves, asafoetida, onions and ginger garlic paste cook till the onions turn light brown now add tomatoes and turmeric cook until they turn soft now add red chilli powder and dhaniya jeera powder if you are using goda masala add it now. sprinkle some water as the masalas shpuld not burn. Now add salt and cabbage stir fry it add the garam masala powder and cover the kadhai with a open lid add water in the lid and cook the cabbage on medium flame. ( this type of cooking is known as वाफेवर शिजवणे in Marathi) let it cook for 5 minutes carefully take off the lid check if the cabbage is cooked if not again keep the lid as it is and cook for sometime. Once done serve it with chapati or dal and rice.
