Just like lauki/bottle gourd, cabbage is another ingredient that can be used in no onion no garlic cooking. Compare to lauki, its water content is 92% and is very low in saturated fat and cholesterol but loaded with dietary fiber and other nutrients. Add this to a gravy to add some extra nutritional value.
If I am cooking without onion and garlic, I keep the following paste on hand – cashew paste, coconut paste, tomato paste, cabbage paste and lauki paste. No one can tell the difference as it tastes equally good and super delicious. Follow the step by step recipe below to this super nutritious dish.
