Cabbage Peas and Potato Sabji

Cabbage is a green leafy vegetable, which is generally available all round the year in most parts of the world.  It is very rich in most vitamins and nutrients – Vitamin B,  C and K being the top vitamins found in cabbage!! It is very low in calories and an excellent source of anti-oxidant.  It is easy to cook and simple dishes may be prepared with cabbage!

It is said that there are nearly 4000 varieties of potatoes in various colours, shapes and sizes. Unfortunately we do not eat potatoes raw as they contain a high amount of vitamin C most of it which is lost due to cooking the potato.
High in potassium, Vitamin B6 and is good for the heart – Kids love dishes made out of potatoes and ofcourse – ofcourse potato chips are much-loved by all!

Peas are considered to be one of the most nutritious vegetable and low in calories.  Although frozen and canned peas are easier to use, consuming fresh peas whenever possible is a better option as the key vitamins such as Vitamin C, B1, B2, B3 and B6 will be more in fresh peas than frozen or canned!

This  is just another variation of preparing a sabji with the combination of cabbage, peas and potato!!
