Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 tsp nigella seeds
  • thumb-sized piece ginger , grated
  • 2 garlic cloves , grated
  • 200g pumpkin or butternut squash, peeled and chopped into 1-2cm cubes
  • 200g cabbage , chopped (sweetheart or pointed cabbage works well)
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • dhal , chutney and rice or roti to serve (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the nigella seeds. When they start popping, add the ginger and garlic, and cook for 1 min. Add the squash, cabbage, spices and 1 tsp salt, then mix everything together well with a splash of water, covering the pan with a lid. Leave to steam for 7-8 mins over a low heat.

  • STEP 2

    After this time, lift the lid to check if the squash is cooked. If not, replace the lid quickly and leave to cook a little longer. Add the lime juice and check for seasoning before serving with dhal, chutney and rice or roti, if you like.
