Purple Cabbage Spread

A healthier alternative to mayonnaise.

You need:

  • A roughly chopped purple cabbage.
  • Butter.
  • Pepper corns about a tablespoon.
  • Sugar either white or preferably brown, about a tablespoon.
  • Apple cider vinegar as per taste.
  • Extra virgin olive oil or sesame oil.

Lay out the cabbage on a moderately hot pan. Let it sizzle for sometime. This will help remove any water that was retained after washing. Once you feel that there is no water left and this will take barely four to five minutes add the butter.

Let it melt into the cabbage and keep cooking till the cabbage becomes soft and tender. Now add the sugar, salt and pepper. Mix well. Taste it. Now slowly add the vinegar. Be careful and add till its at the level of tartness you like.

Mix well and now move the cabbage to one side. The liquid will collect on the other. Increase the heat and cook till the liquids have all evaporated.

Let it cool.

Blend in a mixie. It will be dry. Now add any oil like olive or sesame till it’s smoothness is at the level you want.

Pair this with any protein of your choice. I used a simple Pomfret fry.

Make your sandwich with any bread, toasted or plain.
