2 servings


  • 3 tablespoons fresh hara dhania (cilantro), finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons cabbage, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons carrots, peeled and finely chopped

  • 2 cups water


  1. Put the butter in a pot. Keep the heat on medium and let it melt.
  2. Once the butter melts, reduce heat to low and put in the garlic, ginger, and green chilli. Stir for about 1 minute or until the raw taste of ginger and garlic goes away.
  3. Add the chopped carrots and cabbage. Stir-roast for about 1 minute.
  4. Add in the water now and squeeze the lemon juice, salt, and black pepper powder. Raise heat to medium and add in the cilantro, too. Let it come to a boil.
  5. While the mixture is heating up, add a few teaspoons of water in the cornflour and stir to make a smooth solution.
  6. When the mixture comes to a rolling boil, put in the cornflour solution and stir a few times to mix it in. Then cook it for 1-2 minutes until it thickens to your liking.
  7. Transfer to serving bowls and serve.
