cabbage foogath recipe, goan style steamed cabbage with coconut

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.

  1. Great simple recipe.. I will try it out.. Will even try it out without onions during pujas..

  2. That a delicious and simple cabbage. We have a like and not so like relationship with cabbage too. though hubbs will easily eat the potato cabbage subzi but not too frequently. I love the simple white and blue offset pictures! We get sun so rarely that when it actually shows up I end up taking over exposed pics:)

  3. I’ve never cooked cabbage with coconut, we make cabbage with green peas and potatoes always….will try it out next time, loved the simplicity of the dish!

    • i know… even at home i usually make the north indian sabzi with cabbage, green peas and potatoes. do try out this one. you will like it. goes very well with soft phulkas or bread.

  4. thats so true, cabbage as such can be pretty boring but with coconut it totally gets transformed

  5. I remember my mother made this subji at home some 35 yrs back. The only ingredient she did not add was grated coconut. I am sure it will add a lot more to the taste and flavor. Will try this soon.

  6. What a unique dish! I’ve never thought to combine cabbage and coconut. I cannot wait to try this 🙂

  7. I love cabbage with chilies and coconut. I learned to cook this from a pan-Asian book.

  8. Cabbage goes really well with coconut. I make a South Indian style playa with lots of coconut which is also delicious.

  9. Both this dish and the upkari sound delicious. I’ve never cooked cabbage with coconut before but now I am desperate to try it. The flavours sound so good for each other!

    • both coconut and cabbage really go well with each other. the sweetness of the cabbage is accentuated by adding coconut. do try natalie and i am sure you will like it.
