Cabbage and Peas curry

A speedy curry that's ready in less than 15 minutes, It is delicious with rice or chapatti. Normally I like my cabbage sliced paper this and cooked into a cabbage curry, however when I am in a hurry and need a speedy curry I cheat and throw the cabbage in my food processor and just shred it coarsely. Believe it or not  but cutting a vegetable in different shapes really makes the curry taste different too!!! I would say my favourite way is the arduous paper thin sliced cabbage curry but this shredded version is not bad either.
