Dill Cabbage Subzi

Dill-flavored Cabbage Subzi:
Course: Side
Cuisine: Indian


  • 1/2 large cabbage or 1 small one (about 5 cups), chopped thinly.
  • 1 tbsp canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 14- oz can of diced tomatoes (can substitute with 2 fresh tomatoes, diced)
  • 1 cup peas
  • 2 tbsp dill , chopped
  • Grind to a fine powder:
  • 1 tsp cardamom seeds
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp ajwain seeds (can substitute with cumin)


  • In a large skillet, heat the oil.
  • Add the tomatoes and half the ground spices. Let the sauce cook until it has thickened slightly, about 10 minutes.
  • Add the cabbage and stir until coated with the tomatoes and spices.
  • Cover and cook on a medium-low flame about 15-20 minutes until quite tender.
  • If you are using fresh peas, add them now. If using frozen, wait another five minutes until the cabbage is completely tender, then add.
  • Once all the vegetables are cooked, add the remaining spices and salt to taste.
  • Add the dill and mix thoroughly.
  • Serve piping hot with the Sweet-Aloo Paratha.
