How to best consume mustard seeds? Well, I’m still on this Indian food program, so I will share a recipe that I love for Indian cabbage. Sounds a little weird? Hmmm. Tastes really good though…
1 large onion, diced to ¼ inch x ¾ inch
4 tablespoons olive oil, (or coconut oil for some really authentic flavor)
2 tablespoons brown mustard seeds
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
½ teaspoon turmeric
5 - 8 dried chili peppers
sea salt to taste
chopped cilantro for garnish – optional
Cover and allow to simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. After 10 minutes, if the cabbage is sticking to the bottom, add a little water (about ¼ cup).
To good health,
