cabbage potato recipe with step by step photos. this dish is a simple homely recipe of a dry sabzi made with potatoes and cabbage.

potato cabbage sabzi

potatoes and cabbage make a good combination in dry veggie dishes. this easy punjabi aloo patta gobhi sabzi is how i make at home. at times i also add some green peas to this sabzi.

this potato cabbage sabzi goes very well with chapatis and even makes for a good side dish with a dal and rice. the sabzi along with soft phulkas also makes for a healthy tiffin box lunch. it also goes very well with bread. at times i also make some sandwiches with this sabzi.

handy tip: before chopping cabbage, do blanch the cabbage in boiling hot water for 5 minutes. this to kill the insects or worms if any inside the cabbage. just halve or quarter the cabbage. then keep it in the hot boiling water for 5 minutes. if not using the entire cabbage, then once cooled, keep the cabbage in the fridge or in the freezer.

  1. Is there a need to fry the potatoes before adding it ? Because my potatoes are not becoming soft, what to do?

    • no need. they get cooked along with the patta gobhi. sometimes due to the quality of potatoes it may take a longer time. so you can fry them in some oil and then add to the cabbage when the cabbage is cooked.
