Stir Fried Cabbage with Red Peppers, Peanuts, and Peas

Ingredients:

3 Tbsp canola oil
1 ½ tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp turmeric
3 dried red chiles
2 cups toasted unsalted American peanuts
1 3 ½ lb head of cabbage, cored and finely chopped
2 red peppers, seeded and finely chopped (pea-sized pieces)
1 cup frozen peas
1 to 1 ½ tsp kosher salt, or to taste

Directions:

  1. Heat the canola oil with the cumin seeds, turmeric and chiles in a
    large pot or wok over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until
    the chiles become smoky, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the peanuts and cook for 2 minutes, to brown them slightly and
    heat them up.
  3. Add half of the cabbage and all of the red peppers and peas and stir
    to combine with the spices. After a couple of minutes the cabbage will
    start to wilt. Now stir in the remaining cabbage.
  4. Cook, stirring often until the volume has reduced by one-third and the
    cabbage looks very browned, about 15 to 30 minutes (depending upon
    your pot or wok).
  5. Mix in the salt and serve warm or at room temperature
