Cabbage Sambharo - Warm Salad with Cabbage and Carrot - Gujarati recipe

Sambharo is a quick stir fry made of cabbage and carrots. It is flavoured mildly with chillies and spices. It works as a side dish as well. As with most Gujarati recipes, this also has a little sugar to add sweetness. You can skip it if you don't like it.

Cabbage 2-3 cups Shredded
Carrots 2-3 grated
Green Pepper 1 Julienne

Green Chillies 3
Curry Leaves 2 sprigs
Mustard seeds 1 tsp
Asafotida a generous pinch
