Bandh Gobi Subji / Punjabi Cabbage Dish (vegan, gluten-free)

1 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp mustard seed
6-8 curry leaves
1 small onion, diced small
1 to 2 small jalapeno (depending on heat desired), diced small
3 cloves garlic, diced small
1 small head green cabbage, diced small
1/2 tsp tumeric
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 to 3/4 cup frozen peas
1/4 tsp garam masala (optional)
sea salt to taste

Heat the coconut oil over medium high heat. Add mustard seed and cover pan, allowing mustard seeds to pop (but not escape!). Remove cover as seeds finish popping, lower heat to medium and add onion and curry leaves; saute until onion begins to brown. Add jalapeno, garlic, cabbage and about 1/4 tsp salt, stir to mix well; cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add tumeric, cumin, and coriander; stir well, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add frozen peas; stir well and cook another 5 minutes or until any water from cabbage and peas has cooked off. Add garam masala and saute an additional 3 minutes. Test salt and add more as needed. Serve with roti (Indian flat bread) or rice.

*soy and gluten free if served with rice
