Kobi Bateta Nu Shak (Cabbage and Potato Curry)

Kobi Bateta Nu Shak (Cabbage and Potato Curry) – is a regular lunch curry served with hot rotlis in Gujarat. It has minimum ingredients and is quick and easy to make.

In this recipe I have used white cabbage but you can use green or sweetheart cabbage if you wish to. The sweetheart cabbage has a slightly high water content so when it is cooked it does not require additional water. In addition, you can add fresh or frozen peas to this recipe if you desire, on this occasion I have omitted them.

It is a dry curry and is very easy and quick to make particularly if you are a working woman like myself or a bachelor looking for a homely dish for lunch or dinner.
