  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Saute carrots in hot oil until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Add onion; saute until onion is fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  2. Season carrot mixture with turmeric, cumin, pepper, and ground ginger; stir and let the seasonings toast until fragrant, about 1 minutes.
  3. Stir cabbage and garlic into the carrot mixture; cook, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage wilts, about 10 minutes.
  4. Stir potatoes into the cabbage mixture. Pour water into the pot and stir. Bring the liquid to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a simmer, stirring every 10 minutes, until the potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can reduce the final cooking time by cutting the potatoes smaller.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I cover when cooking on medium low. That keeps the water from evaporating. This is very good even though I usually don't have carrots.

Very good dish kids and husband loved it. I added a bit more turmeric and cumin. Also added fresh ginger not ground ginger. I think the next time I make this dish that sweet peas will be added f...

I added green beans, white beans, garam Marsala,and dash of cayenne. I also added more liquid: water and abt 1/3 c V8 I think one reason mine was so dry is that I used only a little bit of oli...

My husband and I loved this dish. I didn't have any ginger and it still turned out delicious. I did use more water during cooking. I have recommended this to a friend and I will definitely be ma...

This was good and easy! Four stars, because it is a tad bland. We didn't have carrots, so I used a cup of garbanzo beans, and I also didn't have ginger so I just left it out. Was very good and ...

very good it is missing the jalapeno paper add at the end of cooking.

This was very tasty, similar to restaurants and easy with clear directions. I added some salt and cumin seeds along with cumin and extra spices. Super easy to reheat. This probably makes 8 servi...
