1 cup shredded or chopped cabbage
2 cloves of garlic or ginger chopped finely
1 tbs mustard
1.5 tbs red chilli powder
Pinch of methi seeds
Lemon juice as needed
Salt as needed
2 tbsps oil
Cut cabbage to large cubes. Wash in ample water. Drain and allow to dry completely on a cloth or colander.Chop ginger or garlic as well.
Add mustard and methi seeds to a blender jar.
Powder it finely.
- Add all the ingredients cabbage, chili powder, salt, mustard powder, garlic to a mixing bowl.
- Pour oil over the mix.
Mix everything well and add lemon juice. Adjust salt. The mixture will be fairly dry. Rest it for 6 to 8 hours without refrigeration. After few hours you will see that the cabbage begins to release the juices and shrinks slightly.
After 24 hours mix it well. After 2 days, check the salt and sourness. I had to add more lemon juice. Mix it again. Transfer to a glass bottle / jar, do not use plastic jars.
