Easy Egg Cabbage Stir Fry


One of my favorite ways to make cabbage with the egg added to it…

I don’t make too many dishes with cabbage, usually it would be stir fries. I like to flavor up the bland cabbage by adding eggs to it. This is one dish that I make whenever I have cabbage in my refrigerator. This can be served as a side dish with rice or can be wrapped in chapati, tortilla or roti.
