Foogath is the term used for any vegetable dish made with coconut and curry leaves. The ingredients are few and the recipe simple as can be. As a matter of fact, it took me longer (something like 5 minutes) to finely slice the cabbage than it did to cook this dish! Cabbage Foogath tastes lovely with hot Chapatis or plain boiled rice and daal.


  • 4 cups finely sliced cabbage
  • 2 tbsps oil
  • 3/4 tsp mustard seeds
  • 2 green chillies chopped fine
  • 6-8 curry leaves washed and dried on paper towels
  • 1 large onion chopped fine
  • 4 tbsps fresh grated coconut
  • Salt to taste


  • Wash and drain the sliced cabbage in a colander.
  • Heat the oil in a shallow pan and add mustard seeds. When they stop spluttering add the curry leaves and green chillies and sauté a little.
  • Now add the onion and fry till it turns soft.
  • Add the cabbage, salt to taste and cook till the cabbage wilts a little.
  • Add the grated coconut and mix well. Cook for another minute and then turn off the flame.
  • Serve with hot Chapatis (Indian flatbread) or plain boiled rice and a Daal of your choice.
