- 2 tbsp vegetable or coconut oil
- 2 tsp mustard seeds

- Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat. Add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds and chilli flakes and cook for 1-2 minutes until the seeds start to pop. Add the curry leaves and cook for 1 minute, then add the garlic, ginger and turmeric and cook for a further minute.
- Add the cabbage and carrot, stirring well. Cover and cook for 4-6 minutes until the cabbage is tender. If it starts to stick, add a little water to prevent it burning.
