Cabbage is one of the few vegetables that we bring  regularly at home.  The toughest task seems to be planning the menu for the day. Coming across this stir fry, I kinda new that it is meant for me and soon it found a place in my daily menu. Bengali style Cabbage stir fry  with potatoes and peas or Bandhakopir Torkari  is a tasty side dish that can be easily made for lunch or dinner. It is tasty with many flavours.

I first read this on my  friends Shubha’s blog. She had made it during our blog hop. It was a love at first sight with this stir fry, but I did take some months to make it.  You can find the recipe here
