This is a wonderful dish for a person, who has just come home and who just has a cabbage in the fridge. This is a wholesome meal. Will go well with roti as well as rice. Good Work

This is a totally useless dish ( hardly a dish ). Basically this guy bought some cabbage and did not know how to use it. So one day he tried this thing. It goes on to show how immaturish somebody can be. Grow up da.
