Kobi Vatana nu shaak is one of my go to for last minute meals.  This Gujarati style cabbage and peas strir fry is light and healthy. Cabbage softens as it cooks and peas adds the perfect bite. The combination tastes wholesome and pairs well with phulka roti or chapati, dal and rice. It can be easily cooked at home in less than 15 minutes and it is vegan and gluten free. This dish is jain and contains no onion or garlic.


Cabbage is also called Patta Gobi in Hindi stays fresh for a long time in the fridge. You can pair it along with peas, potatoes or tomatoes to add volume 


You can use frozen or fresh peas in this dish. Peas adds a bite and sweetness to this dish. If you are using fresh peas, cook or steam them till they are semi cooked 


I have grown up eating this shaak with minimum masalas or spices. It prevents from altering the taste of the cabbage 


Always add salt in the end as cabbage releases water and you want to prevent that when making this shaak.
