    I also make with similar ingredients, but I cook cabbage 4 minutes in the microwave that cabbage color stays green and cook faster.

      Microwave kills the nutrition in the vegetable. For certain vegetables 70% of the nutrition is gone if you cook in Microwave.

      • Sucharita Mahajan

        Which nutrients are lost in microwave? 70% or otherwise?

    • Sucharita Mahajan

      Yes, that’s a great idea. The greenish cabbage is so tempting. Besides, most of the nutrients remain intact in microwave.
