Sambharo - Cabbage Salad

Sambharo is a Gujrati Cabbage Salad that is served as accompaniment to main meals. I often use this as filling for my sandwiches and it increases the taste largely. In my preparation I have substituted raw green mangoes with touches of vinegar, but original Sambharo requires green sour mangoes in good measure.
Ingredients:                                         Cooking time:10 minutes
ü  1 cup of cabbage, julienne cut
ü  1 medium sized carrot, julienne cut
ü  1 capsicum or bell pepper, julienne cut ( I have used red bell pepper)
ü  2-3 green chillies, julienne cut
ü  1/2 tsp of turmeric powder
ü  1/2 tsp of mustard seeds
ü  1 tsp of sugar
ü  1 tbsp of vinegar
ü  5-7 curry leaves
ü  Couple of pinches of salt to taste
ü  1 tbsp of white oil
1) Cut all the vegetables and mix vinegar with them.
2) Heat oil in a skillet. Add mustard seeds and curry leaves when oil becomes smoking hot. Add all the vegetables and turmeric powder. Sauté on medium heat till vegetables turn a bit tender. Add salt & sugar. Stir around for a while. Remove from the flame.

3) Serve hot or use as filling in a sandwich.
