The kind of cabbage curry that I have posted here is something that can be tried in northern and southern india.
It has got a curry consistency and can easily be mixed with rice and can be served with roti or chapathi too.
I have used very less spices and main ingredients to make this curry are onions and tomatoes. Methi and hara dhaniya can be skipped if they are not readily available at home.
However adding these herbs give a wonderful aroma and taste to the dish and I prefer that these herbs should be added but they are optional ingredients and yet can make a tasteful curry.
This curry can be carried and packed for lunch with rice as well as good to eat during dinners too.

This is a one pot meal and can be made very quickly by pressure cooking method.
I have used a pressure cooker and not a cooking utensil to make this curry.
The pressure cooking method is the quickest method to make curries and yet the taste and flavours remain the same.
