by Cinnamon Vogue

Enjoy a delicious slightly savory Ceylon Cinnamon Cabbage stir fry packed full of anti-oxidant spices.


  • 1 medium cabbage
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • 1 Ceylon Cinnamon Stick (3 inch)
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 6 curry leaves fined chopped
  • 2-4 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder (optional)
  • 1.5 teaspoons black mustard seed
  • Salt to taste (about 2 teaspoons)
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Chop a medium sized cabbage. Not too fine as the cabbage shrinks as it cooks.

    Step 2

    Chop up the onion, finely chop up the curry leaves and break the Ceylon Cinnamon stick into two. The Ceylon Cinnamon gives this dish a fabulous savory taste and blends well with the Cabbage.

    Step 3

    Add oil, 1.5 tsp. black mustard seed, and Cinnamon stick and sauté on medium heat for 5 minutes. Ceylon Cinnamon is the world's 7th most powerful anti-oxidant and helps control blood sugar.

    Step 4

    Add the 1 teaspoon of garlic, 1 teaspoon curry powder (optional), 1/2 teaspoon turmeric and sauté for 5 minutes on medium heat.

    Step 5

    You can optionally add a few pieces of red or green chili or 1/4 teaspoon of chili. But if kids are eating or you can't handle chili then avoid the Chili.

    Step 6

    Add the cabbage, mix it in and cook for ten minutes, stirring every 2 minutes or so. Cabbage contains flavonoid compounds that help protect against many forms of cancer, especially breast cancer.

    Step 7

    Add salt about half way through. Mix it well. Turmeric adds color but is also a powerful anti-oxidant and anti inflammatory. Black mustard seeds are good for arthritis as is Ceylon Cinnamon.

    Step 8

    Now you are done. You can cut up some green chili on the side if you want. But they are hot. Serve with rice and maybe a nice beef or fish curry. Simple yet tasty.
