Bandakopir Ghonto (A dry Cabbage dish):

Bandhakopir(cabbage) Ghonto(a dry dish) mostly we use for a combination of bhog ( Prasad devoted for God) to serve it with Kitchari .

One of the main things about bandakopir ghoto is the way you chop the cabbage, usually medium stripes and the trick is not to overcook the dish.

From an Ayurvedic medicine perspective cabbage has a anti-inflammatory effect on body. It is balancing for all body types. The juice of cabbages helps to heal stomach ulcers.

So here is my recipe of cabbage, a great source of vitamins and nutrients including vitamin C, potassium and Folic Acid.

  • Cumin powder- 1 teaspoon
  • Coriander powder-1 teaspoon
  • turmeric powder-1/2 teaspoon
  • Salt to taste.
  • 2 tbsp mustard oil ( you can use olive oil or any vegetable oil)


  1. Heat oil in a heavy bottom kadhai/ wok(you can use a non stick pan)
  2.  Add the bay leaves and the cumin seeds along with the red-chilies and  saute for 2 minutes till they start to splutter
  3. Add the green peas, cabbages and potato. Add remaining masala.

  1. Thank for this recipe with the nutritional info, definitely will help keep my calorie intake in check. I would however suggest, if possible, that you give the amounts in metric weight and volume (for liquids). It sure takes the guesswork out of what one means by medium, small etc, for instance during my last trip to India I was paying more attention to the cooking and noticed that an onion here in north america is about four times the size of an onion in India. Just a thought…

  2. You are most welcome Swapna! I really appreciate your suggestion which will help me to make better my recipes.
