Kobichi Bhaji / Patta Gobi Ki Subji / Cabbage Masala

I never liked the idea of a Patta Gobi ka Subji for meals,as a child!! It used to be a nightmare lunch to see a plain dry patta gobi and roti in my tiffin!! It used to be bearable for dinners, cause then,you have the Dal chawal for rescue atleast , but when it comes in tiffins,there's a no escapr route,apart from ofcourse,starving!! And , I can never be able to bear the growl of an empty stomach!! Maybe that explains my slightly heavier frame!!
Now, being a homemaker and mother myself, I do understand that making a patta gobi is inevitable ,since atleast once you are bound to run out of choice for vegetables. I decided to make it interenting and tastier and more juicy than dry and limp subji! Ofcourse,I play it safe and make it only for dinners with Dals and Raitas for rescue! But my husband does relish this version of cabbage and really does not needs the rescue plan!
