Sauté the onion in a little oil until soft and translucent. Add the curry powder and stir-fry for one minute.

Add the cabbage and stir-fry until tender but crisp. Add the tomato, mix and season well with salt, pepper and sugar. Simmer until the tomato is soft.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
