  • Summary

    I’ve made this stir-fry with a variety of cabbages that we get in our farm share, including savoy and napa, but it’s also quite delicious with regular old green or purple cabbage and even finely shredded Brussels sprouts. This version of palya (a fried or sautéed vegetable dish) is flavored with fried mustard seeds, dals, and red chile pepper and finished with coconut, lemon, and cilantro. Feel free to substitute fresh green chiles for the dried ones, or add green peas to introduce some sweetness into the mix if you don’t have coconut on hand. This side dish is great served over rice with dal and raita, as a topping for tacos, or as a filling for pita sandwiches.

    Ingredients

    • 1/4 cup unsweetened grated coconut (fresh, frozen, or dried)
    • 2 tablespoons mild-flavored oil, such as canola
    • 1 teaspoon yellow or black mustard seeds
    • 2 teaspoons chana dal (the split kernel of a variety of chickpea) and/or urad dal (black gram beans), or 2 teaspoons lightly crushed yellow split peas
    • 1–2 dried red chiles, broken in half
    • 1 small head of cabbage (about 1 1/2 pounds), trimmed, cored, finely chopped (about 8 cups)
    • 3/4 teaspoon (or more) kosher salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
    • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves
    • 1 tablespoon (or more) fresh lemon juice
