Indian Braised Red Cabbage


Full-flavored enough to stand up as a side to hearty dishes, a small bed of this braised cabbage is a colorful accompaniment to skin-on, bone-in chicken, lamb or pork chops, or baked, seasoned tempeh patties.


  • 1 T vegetable oil
  • 2 t yellow or brown mustard seeds
  • 2 t fresh ginger minced
  • 1 C yellow onion thinly-sliced
  • 1 1/2 lb red cabbage cored and thinly-sliced
  • 3 T apple cider vinegar
  • 2 T honey
  • 2 t ground coriander
  • 1 pinch crushed red chili flakes (optional)
  • salt and black pepper, to taste


  1. In a large skillet or wok, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the mustard seeds and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes until they begin to darken and pop, then add the ginger and onion and sauté for 5 more minutes.
  2. Add the cabbage, vinegar, honey, coriander, and chili flakes to the pan and stir well. Cook the cabbage, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes or until tender. Season with salt and black pepper to taste and serve warm.
