This delicious curry can be called South Indian....but, it is a perfect side for rotis also, hence can be called North Indian too.
The health benefits of cabbage include treatment for constipation, stomach ulcers, headaches, obesity, skin disorders, eczema, jaundice, scurvy, rheumatism and arthritis, gout, eye and heart disorders, aging and Alzheimer's disease.
Wait..wait...this is not the end...Cabbage is high in fiber, sulphur, is an abundant source of Vitamin C, prevents cancer, is tich in Vitamin K which boosts mental function and concentration.
