  1. Place a large skillet or wok over high heat. Heat the oil and butter until smoking. Stir fry the onion, carrot, and garlic until the onion begins to soften, about 1 minute. Add the cabbage, coconut, and curry powder; stir fry for 2 more minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low; pour in the coconut milk, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover, and cook to desired doneness. To serve, sprinkle with tomato, green onions, and cilantro.

I thought this needed more curry flavor. I added fresh ginger, cumin and more garlic. I simmered the veggies and coconut mixture longer to let the curry flavor come out, about 10 min. I made a yogurt sauce to top the dish and it was great.

We love cabbage and curry but this was lacking something for our taste buds. Added a granny smith apple peeled and sliced and omitted the tomato. This seemed to be what it needed so perhaps others might light to try this adjustment.

This was exactly what I was craving tonight- something fresh with alot of veggies, spicy, and sweet. I followed the recipe, and served it with grilled chicken spiced with garam masala and white rice. With the fresh cilantro, green onions and tomatoes on top of everything, it was so colorful and a delight to eat.

So delicious! I added green peppers, celery, cauliflower, and russet potato to give it a serious veggie makeover and added an entire can of coconut milk. Served over quinoa. Delicious vegan yumminess!

This was very good and I actually toned down the amount of curry so the kids would eat it and they did. Very yummy way to incorporate cabbage into the menu.

This kind of "grows" on you! At first, I wasn't sure if I liked it. Then, I knew I did! To make this, I bought a whole coconut, and made my own coconut milk and chopped coconut! Thanks for the recipe!

Not great at first. I added crystallized ginger and lemon juice and it was ok. I mixed it with some aloo gobi and it was FANTASTIC. Needs some futzing, but we will make it when we make aloo gobi because they are fantastic together.
