Bacon fat or oil                                                  3 tbs

Butter (unsalted)                                             2 tbs

Onions – Diced                                                  2 cups

Garlic – minced                                                 2 tbs

Ginger – minced                                               1 tbs

Red Chili Flakes                                                 ½ tbs

Cumin                                                                   1 tbs

Garam Masala                                                   1 tbs

Cabbage (Green) or Brussels Sprouts     3 cups

Mash Potato (leftover)                                 4 cups

Cilantro                                                                                ½ bunch

Sausage (optional)                                          1 cup

Sour Cream (garnish)                                     ¼ cup



Heat the fat (oil) and butter in a cast iron skillet.  Add the onions and cook until they start to brown a little.  If using Sausage, add it now.  Add the Garlic, Ginger, Red Chili Flakes and cook for another minute or two.  Add the Cumin and Garam Masala and wait to smell the aromatics.  Add the cabbage and cook for 3-5 minutes.  Add the leftover Mash Potato and mix well.  Spread out evenly this mixture in your pan and leave alone and moderate high heat until a crust begins to form on the bottom.  About 10-15 minutes on each side to crisp up the mixture.  It can be finished in the oven, if necessary.

Cut out pieces or spoon onto serving plate.  Add a dollop of Sour Cream, and minced Cilantro. Serve hot.
