How to make Cabbage Ghonto (a Bengali vegetable dish)

  2. Add the potatoes and the peas. Cover the pan with a lid and let it cook on a low flame for 10 minutes. You can stir it and mix in between to prevent sticking to the bottom.
  3. After 10 minutes, remove the lid and add the chopped cabbage. Add the chopped tomatoes, then add turmeric powder, kashmiri mirch powder, garam masala, cayenne, ground roasted cumin powder and salt as per taste.
  4. Cover the pan with the lid again and let the cabbage cook till it is fully baked on a low-medium flame. You can stir and mix in between. Generally it takes 30 minutes for the cabbage to cook.
  5. When the cabbage is done, remove the lid. Increase the heat to medium high and saute for 5-7 minutes so that the excess water evaporates.
  6. Just before removing the cabbage ghonto from heat, add the sugar and ghee or mustard oil. Mix it and transfer it to a serving bowl.
  7. Garnish the bhandakopi (cabbage) ghonto with chopped coriander.
