Five-Spice Cabbage Salad
This Five-Spice Cabbage Salad uses the Bengali Spice Blend, Panch Phoron, and makes a terrific accompaniment for Tandoori dishes, or fiery Curries.
Salad, Side Dish
Cabbage, Chili, Lemon Juice, Panch Phoron
finely shredded Cabbage;
small dried red Chilies;
Toss the Cabbage shreds with the salt and leave to soften and wilt for at least an hour.
Once softened, rinse the Cabbage several times in lots of water to wash away the excess salt and then squeeze dry.
Bring the oil to the smoking point over a high flame and then add the Panch Phoron.
When the Panch Phoron seeds begin to pop, add the Chillies, stirring briskly, and immediately remove the pan from the heat once they begin to visibly darken.
Pour the oil and spices over the wilted Cabbage and then add the Lemon Juice, tossing well.
Allow to cool to room temperature and then serve.
