Purple Cabbage Salad

Humans are creatures of habit, I am convinced. Especially when it comes to food. We all crave something new – but the craving lasts only till it is satisfied. We invariably revert to comfort (often dishes that we have grown up with). So it is for me too. Whenever I visit the market to buy vegetables, I am often tempted to buy the ‘healthier’ vegetables – purple cabbage, red radish, sweet potato… But, most of the time, I end up buying what I had always bought. And, therefore, the dishes prepared with these vegetables are also invariably the same. I once bought purple cabbage – in a burst of self-righteousness. And then did not know what to do with it. I will not face the same situation now as the following recipe is finger-licking good.
