4 Easy Low Carb Cabbage Rolls Recipes

Lets see how these beauties can be prepared without much of an effort. Here are step by step easy to follow instructions. 🙂

Preparing The cover

The Traditional method is very tedious. That way you have to boil the whole cabbage head and then take out layers one by one. I tried it but lost my patience taking out those tender sticky layers of cabbage leaves one by one carefully. So easier way out for me is this:

  • Separate out raw leaves of cabbage one by one and keep aside.
  • Keep water to boil in a big pan. Add 1 tsp salt to water.
  • Add cabbage leaves to water and let rest for few seconds.
  • Take out leaves with a tong and pat dry.
  • Remove thick vein from cabbage leaves for easier rolling.

Filling for the Rolls

  • Grate 1/2  of a medium cauliflower, some red cabbage, all colored peppers and keep aside.
  • In a wok saute 2 tbsp chopped onions, 2 pods crushed garlic and half tsp ginger paste.
  • Add garam masala.
  • Finally add cauliflower and all other veggies mentioned above.
  • Mix well and let it cook for a minute. Do not cover the wok with a lid.

 Making the Rolls

  • Take blanched cabbage leaves one by one and fill cauliflower mixture in them.
  • Roll leaves with corners tucked in. If you feel that the edges might open, then use tooth picks to keep edges in place.
  • Grease a microwave safe dish with butter and micro high for 6-8 mnts.
  • Once done take those out and shallow fry on a non stick tawa to get that golden brown crust.

Variations for  filling

  1. Egg :
