Cabbage Palya in Minutes

There are many varieties of dishes you can make with cabbage. In the last few days, you saw me posting about Cabbage with cracked wheat Upma. Today it is Cabbage Palya with Jolada Roti. Other than the time it takes to chop cabbage finely, this palya takes literally a few minutes to make.


  1. 1 finely chopped cabbage
  2. 5-6 finely chopped green chillies
  3. 5-6 tsp coconut
  4. finely chopped coriander leaves
  5. 1/2 tsp haldi, 1/2 tsp mustard seeds, 1/2 tsp jeera, 5-6 curry leaves
  6. 2 tsp oil
  7. pinch of hing
  8. salt to taste


In a microwave bowl, cook the cabbage. Next, in a pan, add the oil. When the oil is hot enough add the mustard seeds and jeera. When it starts spluttering all over your stove, add the haldi, hing and green chillies and curry leaves. Next, add the cabbage, salt, coconut. Fry for a few minutes until all of them get mixed well. My mom and even I add a 1/2 tsp of sugar as well. If you don’t like it, just skip the same.

Finally, add the finely chopped coriander leaves. I ran out of coriander leaves and curry leaves.

Serve with rice, chapathi or jolada roti.

Give it a try, let me know how it tasted.
