Red cabbage or purple cabbage? This vegetable has an identity crisis. Red or purple, it is one and the same and this vegetable has numerous health benefits as well. It is a cruciferous vegetable and can be consumed both raw and cooked.
It is a power house of Vitamins, Minerals such as Iron and calcium and dietary fibre . I normally avoid buying cabbages, due to its high pesticide content. Now a day, we do get organic cabbages here in Bangalore. Hence, there is an opportunity to have this beautiful veggie in a raw form as well. When we were shopping, my daughter remembered my Red cabbage sandwich, which I used to prepare for her when she was small and asked me to prepare the same. So, picked up and made this sandwich and tried one rice recipe as well. In coming days, you can expect my new recipe of Red cabbage and sweet corn one pot meal.
Now I will share my sandwich recipe from the scratch-
Shredded red cabbage – 2 cups
Onion – 1 big
Garlic mayonnaise – 2 table spoons
Honey mayonnaise – 2 table spoons
American mustard – 1 tea spoon
Hung curd – 1 to 2 table spoons (to adjust the consistency)
Oregano – 1 tea spoon
Tomato ketch up – 1 to 2 tea spoons
Red chilli flakes – ½ tea spoon
Grated cheese – 2 table spoons
Bread of your choice – 1 loaf
Butter – to apply while roasting.
-Take one bowl, put shredded cabbage, chopped onion, garlic mayo, honey mayo, American mustard and hung curd. Mix nicely.
-Now mix in Oregano, chilli flakes, tomato ketchup and grated cheese.
– Mix and make a spreadable mixture. Now your sandwich stuffing is ready.
-Take one slice of bread, spread this mixture and close another bread slice over this.
-Apply butter on both the slices at outer side and keep it in a pre-heated sandwich maker.
-When outer surface becomes light brown, remove and proceed to make remaining sandwiches.
-If you want an extra zing, you can serve this with tomato ketch up or as it is.
