Cabbage Sambharo

Cabbage Sambharo is a side dish from the state of Gujarat. It is more or less like a warm salad served with rice or rotis. The only time consuming part while making this dish, I feel, is slicing the cabbage. The cooking process takes less than 10 min as you don’t cook the cabbage fully. It should retain some crunch in it.

If you are look for a side dish that you can prepare quickly and serve with rice, then this should definitely be something you try out.
