Caramelized Cabbage with Chicken

When I order a sizzler at a restaurant, one of my favorite things about it is the caramelized cabbage on which everything else is set. This recipe is an attempt to enjoy the same at home but with a healthy touch to it.

Arrange thickly chopped cabbage, some carrots, garlic and chicken thighs in a heavy pressure pan. Season with salt and pepper.


Do not add any water. Cook on a high flame with the lid on but no weight blocking the vent. IN 5-6 mins you will get a the smell of something burning. Ignore it for about 4 mins and then reduce the heat and let it cook for about 10 mins. Open and mix everything. Now place the weight and cook for exactly one whistle.

When pressure has subsided, open and check the base of the pan. There will be a bit of burnt cabbage at the bottom. With the heat on at medium, add lemon juice and deglaze the pan by scrapping with steel spoon.

Serve hot or cold.

The umami kick will get you going yummy yummy yummy.
