Cabbage Sabzi/ Cabbage Curry

I had never seen so many different types of cabbages before i came to Germany. Its wonderful to know that people cook cabbages in so many different ways here. Its like staple food in winter. Back in India we prepared the cabbage curry, cabbage bhaji's and koftas during winter season. As its still cold in Germany i decided to prepare the cabbage curry. This is very simple yet delicious cabbage curry recipe which has been shared to me by my sister-in-law.
