Some Tips/ Suggestions:

  1. I am very thankful to my friend Dr Ruchi, who gave me that tip years ago, to add fenugreek seeds which helps in the digestion of cabbage as it is high in dietary fibers. And it actually increases the taste of the vegetables..
  2. I have used frozen peas, which are mostly half boiled and takes just a couple of minutes to cook. I you are using fresh green peas add them with other vegetables.
