Cabbage Gasi

Here’s another interesting Udupi recipe: Gasi.

This goes very well with rice or chapathi or puri or paratha.

Directions are very easy. If you are looking for a change from everyday cooking, Gasi offers a new flavor and choice. Better yet, you can try several variations of Gasi by just changing the main vegetable ingredient. Adding black-eyed beans gives not only taste but also packs protein to your meal. You can also replace the black-eyed beans with beans (pinto beans,black beans, or garbanzo beans etc). Try this recipe today!



  • Half cabbage chopped and washed (medium size)
  • 1/2 cup black-eyed beans
  • 1 onion chopped (Optional, but adds a lot of taste)
  • 1 1/2 cup grated coconut
  • 4 – 5 red chilies
  • 2 tbsp of Urad dal
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 tsp tamarind
  • Small piece jaggery (2 tsp grated)
  • 1 strand curry leaves



  • Soak the black-eyed beans for 10 minutes and steam cook under pressure.
  • Place a vessel over medium heat and cook the cabbage and onion together in 2 cups of water. Add a teaspoon of turmeric powder to this.
  • When the cabbage is about half-cooked, add tamarind, jaggery and salt and continue to cook.
  • In small pan, fry urad dal, cumin seeds, and chilies with a teaspoon of oil.
  • When the spices start to fry, add curry leaves and coconut and take the pan off the heat. This is the Gasi masala.
  • Blend the masala with 1 cup of water.
  • Add the masala paste and boiled black-eyed beans to vegetables (Cabbage & onion). Bring it to a boil.
