How to make Bandhakopir Ghonto?

To prepare this Cabbage stir fry Indian, first I have shredded the cabbage and transferred them in a colander. After that, I have washed them in running water and kept aside.

Normally, in traditional Bandhakopir Ghonto or Niramish Badhakopi recipe, Matar (Peas) and Potatoes are added to enhance the taste and texture of the dish. Even I have added Potatoes and Peas to stick to the traditional recipe.

I have used frozen Peas for the Bandhakopir Ghonto or Niramish Badhakopi recipe. But you can also use fresh Peas for the recipe. The only difference between fresh and frozen Peas is that the frozen Peas get cooked quicker as compared to the fresh ones. So, I have added Peas once Cabbages are more than half cooked.

After tempering the whole spices, I have cooked the potato chunks for some time before adding the shredded cabbage. Then I have added the cabbage and cooked it with lid. I have not added any extra water to cook this dish. Only if your cabbage is too dry, you can add some extra water.

In this recipe, I have added Cumin seeds, Cinnamon stick, Bay leaf and Cloves for tempering. These whole spices give a nice aroma to the iconic dish. Other than these, I have used Cardamom powder instead of whole Cardamoms in this dish. I have also used Cumin powder, Coriander powder and Garam Masala powder for flavouring.

I always add Ghee (Clarified Butter) at the end of this Niramish Badhakopi recipe. It enhances both the taste and flavour of Cabbage. If you have never tried this then you must try it once to see the difference.

I have added Sugar in this Bengali Cabbage and Potato curry. It enhances the taste of the dish and give you the exact taste of Bandhakopir Ghonto that is served in Puja Pandal.
