Carrot & Cabbage Stir Fry

I am not a great fan of carrots and specially when used in side dishes or curries. The Delhi carrots are sweet and lend a sweet flavor to the dishes hence the hesitancy. With the theme Quick Stir Fries for week 3 I wanted to make Cabbage Stir Fry, which is a total hit in our house, since cabbage was not enough I decided to use carrot too. 

I cut the carrots into match sticks and mixed the little cabbage that I had. I added some slit green chillies to give it the spice kick. Surprisingly I enjoyed the Stir Fry, inspite of my mind block. It really turned out delicious , In fact I can have a big bowl of this stir fry . So let us check this simple and quick recipe.

Carrot & Cabbage Stir Fry
2 carrots, match stick cutting
1/4 head cabbage
2-3 green chilies, slit into two
1/2 tsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
Pinch asafoetida
Salt to taste
Few drops lemon juice

Heat oil.
Add mustard and asafoetida.
Add the chilies.
Immediately add the chopped carrot and cabbage.
Add salt and lemon juice.
Toss for a minute and remove from fire. Serve immediately.
