Cabbage Koora

This a very simple yet delicious Andhra recipe for cabbage koora (sabji). I like it so much that sometimes I eat it all by itself, like a salad with some yoghurt on the side. The spice here comes from the green chilis. Serve with rice.

Chana Masala (Savory Indian Chick Peas)

Rating: Unrated
146
Indian food is not just curried sauces. It's not too exotic either. Unless 'exotic' is code for 'yummy and full of flavor.' This dish features a healthy mixture of chickpeas, tomatoes, onion, and spices. Both carnivores and vegetarians will enjoy this meal. My kids love it. Leave out the green chile if the kiddies will be eating. Serve over basmati or jasmine rice and enjoy. Namaste y'all!

This eggplant goes well with some steamed green beans and French or Italian bread. Although the recipe calls for seasoned bread crumbs, you can use regular bread crumbs if you wish. Adjust the amount of red pepper flakes according to your taste.
