Bandakopi Bhaja - Cabbage Stirfry

Bandakopi Bhaja - Cabbage Stirfry

I search here and there so many places for some bengali dishes but somehow anything didn't catch my eye. After much of brainstorming I settled for Bandakopi Bhaja or Cabbage fry. I followed the recipe as it is except that in the end I didn't add powder mustard as I have used mustard seeds and mustard oil for cooking.

Talking about mustard oil, while using this oil make sure the oil is heated properly(heat till smoking point) before adding anything in the oil. If the oil is not heated properly then in the food there will be strong oil smell which most of the people don't like.

Paach Phoron is the main ingredients in this recipe and which is made from equal proportion of Cumin seeds, Fennel seeds, Nigella seeds, Mustard seeds, Fenugreek seeds. Since I needed only 1tps of paach phoron I used a pinch of all the 5 seeds and the proportion was just perfect. The recipe took less than 10mins to cook including the cabbage cutting part. So do try this simple but tasty bandakopi bhaja.
