So Jamie Oliver made this as a coleslaw with finely grated mixed cabbages and mustard to have with bean burgers, I liked it so much I added more yogurt and made it a little chunkier to enjoy as a yogurty raita style accompaniment to have with curry. The amazing thing about this salad is the colour of it and the point where it changes colour…amazing.
ingredients for the cabbage raita/slaw:
-1/4 of a large red cabbage finely sliced in the food processor (or by hand) or grated with a box grater for a finer texture.
-1 small red onion, finely sliced
-A tablespoon of chopped, fresh coriander
-The juice of half a lemon
-A big pot of fat-free Greek yogurt
So you dice up the cabbage and onion, place in a bowl and squeeze the lemon over, you’ll see the cabbage turn from almost blue-purple to BRIGHT RED. Red cabbage contains a natural litmus property which changes colour with different pHs, so this is pretty cool. Add yogurt to taste, more yogurty for Raita, less for slaw, mix in most of the coriander, mix together and then sprinkle the rest of the coriander on top. Voila! YUM!
