Stir fry cabbage from the Malaysian cookbook
« on: May 10, 2012, 04:12:34 am »

Name of Recipe: Stir fry cabbage from Easy Cooking, Healthy eating from Malaysia
Number of People: 2
Ingredients:

300g cabbage sliced 1cm thick
50 g carrot - cut into batons
10g garlic
10g oil (I used olive oil)
3 spring onions sliced (optional)
S & P to taste

Preparation:

Place garlic into TM bowl, chop 5 sec/speed 5.
Add oil and saute 2 mins/varoma temperature/speed 1.
Add cabbage, carrot and spring onions if using, fry 10 - 15 mins/varoma temperature/reverse/speed 1.
Add  S & P to taste.


Tips/Hints:

In the original recipe the cabbage & carrot were only cooked for 4 minutes but I ended up cooking them for 15 minutes and it was delicious - just how I like my fried cabbage.  I'd suggest you check it at 4 mins and see what you think then continue cooking until it is to your taste. I took the MC off for the last 5 minutes.

Either saute it with the garlic or do it separately in a pan and add at the end DG.

Thanks JD - this was a lovely addition to our roast last week.  We like our veggies quite firm (not too soggy) and we four minutes was definitely not enough time  :) We cooked ours for about 10 mins. :)

Glad you enjoyed it Tam, I think the addition of the carrot adds some sweetness to it and it sure beats steamed or boiled cabbage  ;)

We had this tonight as a side dish with roast pork.
Neither of us really like cabbage, but we both enjoyed this. 

I used JD's timings and not the lesser time in the book and it was cooked perfectly  :)
