Cabbage Peas Curry
Main Ingredients : Purple Cabbage and Peas
Cooking Time : 15 mins
Purple or Red Cabbage's leaves are coloured dark red/purple. In acidic soils, the leaves grow more reddish, in neutral soils they will grow more purple, while an alkaline soil will produce rather greenish-yellow coloured cabbages.
Purple cabbage has a relatively high ratio of nutrients and vitamins to calories and fat, which makes it an ideal choice for dieters. It is common in salads, coleslaw, braised dishes and pickled treats. On cooking, red cabbage will normally turn blue.
Green Peas are one of the most nutritious leguminous vegetables rich in health benefiting phyto-nutrients, minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidants.
