Remember the easy fried purple cabbage vegetable we made last week? Well, this week was pretty busy too. So mom made her easy cabbage and corn stir fry; another one of those quick and easy vegetarian dishes to cook when you’re in a hurry. Just chop, fry and eat! The traditional cabbage vegetable dish is called kobichi bhaji in Marathi or gobheechi bhaji in Hindi. We make it different by adding the corn and tweaking a few of the ingredients.
So, what are the ingredients for this Easy Corn and Cabbage Bhaji?
The main ingredient, of course, is your cabbage! Can’t make a cabbage bhaji without it. By the way, if you’re not Indian, bhaji is the Indian term for vegetables. It can be used for raw or cooked vegetables, as can the word sabzi.
1 Cabbage (approximately half a kg)
100 grams Sweet Corn
2 tbsp Oil or Ghee
1 tsp Cumin (Jeera)
1 tsp Mustard Seeds (Rai)
1.5 tsp Salt
3 Green Chillies
5 Curry Leaves – Optional
Steps to make the Cabbage and Corn Sabzi
Chop the cabbage and leave aside. Do the same for the chillies.
Now take a dish and pour in about 2 tablespoons of oil or ghee. Make a tadka by adding in the jeera (cumin) and rai (mustard seeds) and frying for 2 minutes. Next, add in the chopped chillies and the curry leaves and fry for 2 more minutes. The curry leaves are not necessary, but they cool the body and are supposedly good for digestion.
Lastly, add in the chopped cabbage and sweet corn and fry for 5 minutes before it’s ready to serve. And that’s it! Easy peasy cabbage and corn vegetable is ready to serve! Enjoy with some rotis and a spoonful of yogurt or chutney.
