Simple daily side dishes-1 - Cabbage-potato-tomato subji

On a usual day, one does not look to cook exotic dishes with too many ingredients or restaurant like food. What most of our busy schedules ask for is a quick, yet balanced meal and dish that does not demand for too much of ingredients. On most working days, I prefer a quick meal of daal-rice, roti, subji served with some pickle or chutney. The major challenge with this humble meal is, the subji! What to make today? What's there in fridge? What's quick? Can all of family like it?
So many questions. Well challenges are unique to each household but at kitchenkatta,starting this week  I am going to give you some quick subji recipes that are perfect for daily meals and can be prepared with few usual ingredients.

First in the list is this simple cabbage-potato-tomato subji .
This subji is not spicy and is suitable for children's tiffin too.

1. 1 medium sized cabbage 
2. 2 medium sized potatoes 
3. 1 large tomato 
4. 1/2 tbsp turmeric powder 
5. 1 tbsp red chili powder 
6. Salt to taste 
7. 1/2 tbsp sugar 
8. 3-4 tbsp oil 
9. 1/4 tbsp mustard seeds

1. Shredding cabbage is the key to this recipe. The thin cabbage strips will fry well on oil to give the crisp to the subji
Shred the cabbage and keep aside. 
2. Peel and cut potatoes into small cubes
3. Cut tomato into small cubes 
4. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds to it
5. As the mustard cracks, add the shredded cabbage and potato cubes.
Mix well. Cover and cook till cabbage starts changing color. This will take 3-4 minutes on medium flame
6. Add tomato cubes, salt and cover and cook again till cabbage, potatoes and tomato are fully cooked
7. Lower the flame, add turmeric powder, chili powder, sugar and mix well
8. Keep stirring and cook for 2-3 minutes on high flame till the subji is fully dry
Tasty cabbage-potato-tomato subji is ready!

Do not use any water in cooking. Moisture in cabbage will help the cooking. Cook on low flame if it is turning dry to quick and keep stirring occasionally.
Serve the subji with Daal-rice or phulka.
