Cabbage Sambharo Recipe | Fafda Condiments | Gujarati Cuisine

Hie! Now, I bring delectable food every Wednesday and Saturday, Just for you!

Gujarati Food is everywhere, and we love it too, isn’t it? We adore fafdas and papaya sambharo.. I use to always think what was that yellow thing served with fafdas, its so delicious.. Finally came to know it is Raw Papaya Salad or Sambharo.. Then, my experiments and got the perfect result.. But raw papaya’s aren’t available all the time right? So, cabbage is the substitute.. Oh yes, Fafda is a fried snack made with besan or chickpea flour..

2

Cabbage. Yes, not everyone likes it.. But this preparation is sweet, sour, spicy, crunchy.. Its going to be adored for sure! I can eat this as it is, but this goes to next level when had with fafdas.. So, lets make..

4 5

[widget id=”text-5″]
Cabbage Sambharo - Gujju Food Condiments
 
Ingredients
  • Cabbage - 2 Cups {Chopped]
  • Carrot - ½ Cup {Grated]
  • Curry Leaves - 5-6
  • Gr Chili - 2-3 {Chopped]
  • Turmeric - ½ Tsp
  • Mustard - 1 Tsp
  • Sugar - 1 Tsp
  • Salt - To Taste
  • Lemon Juice - 1 Tbsp {Appx.}
  • Oil - 1½ Tbsp
Instructions
  1. Heat up the oil, temper the mustard. Once crackles, add in the chili and curry leaves.
  2. Lower the flame to the lowest or switch off the flame. Proceed by adding the turmeric, cabbage, salt, sugar, lemon juice. Basically everything.
  3. Stir around nicely and serve!
Notes
Do not cook this, If it cooks even a little bit. the cabbage will leave the moisture and will turn soggy/soft. We want the crunchiness from it.. I prefer to switch off the flame right after i add the cabbage..
