Indian style broccoli slaw


Mom just made this half an hour ago. It still needs a small amount of tweaking, but an Indian vegetable side dish is always a good thing. This recipe came out of the Bismarck Tribune food section.

Serves 4


1 T extra-virgin olive oil

1 medium onion, chopped

1 tsp cumin seeds (she used 3/4 tsp ground cumin)

1/4 tsp turmeric

pinch of cayenne pepper

package of broccoli slaw

1 T lemon juice

3 T (plus more) water

salt and pepper to taste

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add onion and saute until soft, about 4 minutes. Add cumin seeds, turmeric, and cayenne pepper and cook until the spices are fragrant, about 1 minute longer.

Stir in the broccoli slaw, lemon juice and water. Reduce heat to low, cover the skillet and let the mixture simmer gently until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. (It will take longer and more water then the recipe says.) During cooking add water if necessary to prevent sticking. Season with salt and pepper.
