Karahi Shredded Cabbage with Cumin

This cabbage is only lightly spiced and makes a good accompaniment to most other Balti dishes.
Unlike many parts of the Indian subcontinent, Pakistan ¯Â¿Â½ whence Balti recipes come ¯Â¿Â½ is generally a meat-eating nation. Vegetable dishes are, therefore, usually cooked as side dishes, rather than as a main dish, much in the way they are in the West. Consequently, this delicious, slightly spicy treatment of cabbage would go as well with a traditional western roast as it would with a Balti curry or stir-fry.
