Red Cabbage is also known as Purple Cabbage. It generally turns bluish after cooking. Addition of any citric element can help it to retain its original colour. It is mostly accompanied with seasonal roasts in Christmas. Red Cabbage is one of the most important elements in many Halloween dishes because of its red hue.

Red Cabbage is one of the vegetables that I had never tried while I was in India. But after coming to London, I have seen its huge popularity and availability. It encouraged me to try something with this vegetable in my kitchen.

Though I have prepared many coleslaw recipes, soups and Braised Red Cabbage recipe but still Braised Red Cabbage and Potato with Egg fries is very dear to me. It is the first Halloween dish that I prepared in my life which makes me both emotional and happy at the same time. Just one day before Halloween, one of my British friend asked me ‘What’s your special menu for this Halloween?’ This question made me think and I have decided to prepare some platter for the day.

After preparing the Braised Red Cabbage recipe, when I have tried it, I was really very happy with the taste and texture of the dish. When I served the dish to my friends, they complement my cooking a lot. It is a very quick and easy recipe which requires very minimal and easily available ingredients to get prepared.

Braising is a cooking method where first the food is sautéed in high flame and then it is covered and cooked in low flame. Sometimes, even some liquid is added during the time of low flame cooking.

How to cook Red Cabbage?

In this Red Cabbage recipe simple, first I have microwaved some Potatoes and then peeled their skin. Then I have cut them into chunks and kept them aside.

I have finely chopped some Garlic, Spring Onions and fried them one by one for some time. Then I have added the shredded Red Cabbage and sautéed them. After this, I put the flame in low and cooked it in low flame for some time. When the Red Cabbage became soft, I have added the microwaved Potatoes into the pan.

I have squeezed some Lemon juice into the pan to resist the Red Cabbage to turn blue. It gives a tangy touch to the dish and enhances the taste of the dish. Red Cabbages normally turn blue or dark after cooking and to avoid it some acidic fruit or Vinegar must be added.

At the end, I have cracked and poured a couple of Eggs on the pan and cooked it in lowest flame until they are done.

I have used Black Pepper powder, Oregano, dried Parsley and some Salt as seasoning for the dish. These gives a nice flavour to the dish. Red Cabbage itself has a unique flavour and many people love that. So, I have not added too much spice into it. But you are spicy food lover like me then you can sprinkle some extra seasoning and dressing to give a spicy kick to the dish.
