  • In cast iron pan heat oil on a low medium flame, add cumin seeds sauté until it starts spluttering
  • Make sure heat is not on high flame as there might be a chance of cumin getting burnt in that case
  • Add roughly chopped onion and sauté on a low medium heat for about 1-2 minutes until onions gets translucent and pink in color, once oil starts separating add garlic and ginger paste give a good mix and sauté for 1 more minute
  • Add chopped tomato cans, add turmeric powder, red chili powder, salt, freedom spice blend, give a good mix and cook for 2,3 minutes
  • At this stage cover it with a lid as tomatoes might splash everywhere
  • After 3 minutes add ghee or butter ,sugar cook for further until everything is cooked and the oil separates completely
  • Once done let it cool down for about 10- 15 minutes then blend it in a blender to achieve a smooth sauce
  • Pre heat oven 220 degree
  • Cut cabbage in half through core and cut each half through core into 6 wedges, don’t worry if they fall apart
  • In same cast iron pan add prepared tomato sauce , add cabbage to the skillet arrange them into tomato sauce unevenly making sure you fit every single cabbage cuts . You can sprinkle cheese  but I like to drizzle ghee on top of cabbage leaves to keep them moist while baking
  • Bake uncovered at 180 degree for 10-15 minutes until cabbage turns soft and edges starts becoming charred.
  • Once done drizzle avocado oil on baked cabbage, sprinkle freshly grounded black pepper and serve it with rice or any bread


  • You can choose to add carrots, pumpkin to the recipe
  • I love to serve it with coconut cream
  • You can add broccoli, Tofu if you want
