cabbage/ cauliflower

Post by Elvistears » Thu Nov 22, 2007 14:38

Hello,

Forgive the slight randomness of this thread, but I bought an HUGE red cabbage the other day, intending to make red cabbage and apple thingy with it. I've now eaten as much red cabbage and apple thingy as I can take and want to use it up. What can I make with it?

Also - what can I make with the cauliflower I bought, mistakenly thinking I'd enjoy making cauliflower cheese with it? Other than cauliflower cheese, that is?

Oh many thank yous

cauliflower can work in pakora. pakora is AWESOME.

as fer red cabbage.. um, cabbage and bean soup? i', not really crazy for cabbage, though i guess you could chuck that in pakora as well.

my anser is PAKORA.

Cauliflower is great in risotto. Chuck a smidge of creamy stilton in and you're laughing.

Mmm...thanks folks. I'm a bit anti-stilton, so not so sure about that, but I'm sure something else could be found to replace the blueness.

As for PAKORA - do you have a nice recipe?? I do have an indian cookbook, but it tends to suggest you use squillions of herbs that I don't possess in every dish.

Just load up on parmesan if you don't do smelly socks cheese. It'll still work a treat.

whenever i make pakora i just sort of use whatever's lying around.

you can use any blended curry powder you have in the cupboard, you'll need quite a bit and maybe some extra chilli (fresh if possible) cos the gram batter will really dull the flavour.

I'd go for something along these lines: onion, chilli, salt, turmeric, garam massala (extra cumin if you feel like it), gram flour, water, veg!

About 20 years ago at primary school I vaguely recall there's this neat arty thing you can do with red cabbage where you leave it on a sheet of white paper and the red seeps through leaving a pretty pattern that you can cut out and stick on the wall.

Is this a trick question or something? The obvious answer lies in...Kofta Balls! They are a blend of grated cauliflower AND cabbage. I got the original recipe from a karma cookbook which I took the liberty of looking up online and here it is:

They’re fabulous and you can put in different sauces (tomato, curry, morrocan) so experiment to your heart's content. Almost as good as my herby cheese dumplings.
