One-vegetable salads are a common part of Indian meals. Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable rich in vitamins and minerals. It’s a great source of vitamins C, K, A, folate, calcium, iron and potassium. It is also very high in fiber and is a great ingredient to help smooth bowel movement and helps treat constipation especially if eaten raw like in this koshimbir (salad). It has a low glycemic index (GI) keeping you satiated for a long time and is therefore good to maintain sugar levels.
