  1. Great stuff! Never heard of Cabbage pickle before.Cabbage has lot of water content. I guess you have to use it up ASAP and make small amount at a time as well.Looks delicious though.I will try.Thanks:)

    Hey Madhoori!
    Thanks for the recipe. I just went Google-ing for cabbage pickles – in order to use up some cabbage that’s not going to last much longer. This popped up high on the list. I doubled the recipe due to the amount of cabbage I had leftover. After letting it sit in the fridge for a few hours it tasted good, but I decided to add some sea salt. I’m thinking of mixing in some chopped onion next time any thoughts on that? I’m sure that’ll be tasty but how far can I stray before it becomes something else?

    I suspect my experimentation will become less and less Indian e.g. as I’m typing this I realized I’ll be mixing in some greek yogurt to a small portion – just for giggles, but this recipe was a great leaping off point!

    Anyway, thanks again!
