STIR FRIED CABBAGE WITH RED BELL PEPPERS AND PEAS (for six)
3 tablespoons canola oil
1-1/2 teaspoons cumin seeds
1 teaspoon turmeric
3 dried red chiles
1 head of cabbage (about 3-1/2 pounds), cored and finely chopped
2 red bell peppers, cored, seeded and finely chopped
1 cup frozen peas
1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1.Heat the canola oil with the cumin seeds, turmeric and chiles in a large pot or wok over medium high heat, stirring occasionally, until chiles become smoky, about 3 minutes. Add half the cabbage and all of the bell peppers and frozen peas and stir to combine with the spices.
2. After a couple of minutes, the cabbage will start to wilt. Now stir in the remaining cabbage. Cook, stirring often, until the cabbage is tender but still retains some crunch, about 10 minutes. Mix in the salt and serve warm or at room temperature.
