Try this Indian version of Fried Cabbage for the perfect side dish – easy, spicy, and chock full of flavor!  We love adding some peas, tomatoes, and potatoes for a more hearty version.  If you’ve always had fried cabbage the southern way, with loads of bacon, it’s really time to switch things up a bit. This vegetarian version doesn’t need a long list of spices or ingredients, but is extremely delicious and will never make you miss the bacon. I mean, who doesn’t love a clean version of a recipe which has no processed ingredients, no bacon – just pure plant based flavors.
