  • Add in the green chilies and curry leaves, sauté further for a few seconds.
  • Now add the turmeric powder and red chili flakes. Sauté for a second taking care not to burn the spices. Quickly add in the shredded cabbage and mix well.
  • Season it with salt. Drizzle some lemon juice and sauté the cabbage on medium heat for 2 minutes constantly tossing it. Cook the cabbage till it is done. We want the cabbage to stay crisp and not become soggy.
