Sprouts and cabbage gravy - Side dish recipe - Simple side dish for paratha, steamed rice, roti, Chapathi, Pulka

I love simple side dish for chapathi / Roti / Pulka. I always keep some sprouts in the fridge for some quick and healthy dish. Towards end of of the week I always end up with some vegetables in the fridge which is not enough to make any dish by its own. I am not sure about you! This time had some cabbage so I have decided to try some gravy with cabbage and sprouts. It came out pretty well. I had with steamed brown rice also.. It goes well with both rice and roti
