cabbage foogath recipe – a favorite and a staple at home is this goan recipe of cabbage with coconut. this is an easy and simple recipe to make and is also known as fugad de repolho.
mom would make this cabbage foogath recipe at least once a week. this and cabbage upkari were a regular at my place. even the hubby who does not like cabbage is very fond of this one as well as the cabbage upkari.
that’s because cabbage and coconut blend so well with each other giving the dish a slight sweet taste and flavor.
i usually make cabbage foogath to go with dal and rice. simple, comforting and easy home cooked food. in fact i usually have cabbage foogath with either white bread or chapatis. its yum…. few more similar goan recipes are french beans foogath, cabbage bhaji and papdi bhaji.
