Cabbage and Potato Sukke - Cabbage and Potato Curry - Cabbage and potato semi dry gravy - Side dish recipe

My mum used to do this but she does it as a side dish for rice. But till now I didn't know the other name for it. One of my colleague used to bring for his chapathi. I love it as it is a little spicy and easy to pack as it is a semi dry gravy. Recently my husband wants to have cabbage in his diet more often.. So I wanted to try this for our chapati / roti. This goes well with rice too..
