Spicy, earthy, and with just a hint of sweetness, this Indian inspired side dish will definitely be making an appearance in my kitchen often. There are quite a few things I love about this recipe. First it comes together in under 10 minutes if you start with pre-shredded cabbage or cole slaw mix. Win! Second it is full of unusual and interesting flavors from the mustard seeds, curry, garlic, ginger, and dates. This makes it a great complement to a simple baked or grilled protein since the side dish packs in the flavor. Win, win! Finally it tastes great hot, at room temperature, or chilled, which makes it great for leftovers. In fact, it will taste better the next day and is delicious as a cold salad, sandwich filling, or added to a broth for a quick Indian inspired soup. It’s also low calorie and can be low carb without the dates so it works for lots of diets. Win, win, win!

This tastes even better when the flavors have some time to rest so prep it ahead of time or the day before if you can. For Paleo diets or low carb diets you can leave out the dates. Raisins, dried cranberries, or apricots can also be substituted for dates.
