Easy spiced cabbage and potatoes

Looking for a quick and easy side dish? Try this simple spiced cabbage and potatoes. The warm flavours work as a side dish for most meals. Or try it as a filling for injera or dosas.




  1. Place the potato cubes in a pot and bring to a boil. When they boil, turn them off and leave them in the water until ready to saute them. They will only be just starting to cook.
  2. Meanwhile, saute the carrots and onion for 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the salt, pepper, cumin, turmeric and cabbage. Cook another 10 minutes until spices are fragrant and the cabbage is wilted with most of its liquid boiled off.
  4. Add in the potatoes, and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook until potatoes are soft, but not mushy, about 15 minutes.
