1/2 pound cabbage
1/2 pound carrots
2 medium green chile
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon whole black mustard seed
1 medium dried red chile
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
3 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Preparation / Directions:

Core the cabbage and cut it into fine, long shreds. Peel the carrots and grate them coarsely. Cut the green chile into thin, long strips. Heat the oil in a wide, casserole-type pot over a medium-high flame. When hot, put in the mustard seeds. As soon as the mustard seeds begin to pop, put in the dried red chile. Stir once. The chile should turn dark red in seconds. Now put in the cabbage, carrots and green chile. Turn the heat down to medium and stir the vegetables around for half a minute. Add the salt, sugar and green coriander. Stir and cook for another 5 minutes or until the vegetables are just done and retain some of their crispness. Ad the lemon juice. Stir to mix. (Remove the whole red chile before serving to those unfamiliar with Indian foods.) Yield: 4 servings
