Heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok and sizzle the fennel seeds, garlic and chilli for 1-2 mins until the seeds start to crackle and the garlic turns golden. Add the cabbage – don’t worry if it seems too much for the pan, it will soon start to wilt.
Cook for 3-4 mins until the cabbage starts to colour at the edges, then turn up the heat and add about 50ml water to the pan. Steam-fry the cabbage for a few minutes until all the water has evaporated and the cabbage has wilted but is still holding its shape. Transfer to a serving dish.
