Prep Time

15 minutes

Cooking Time

30 minutes



Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 10ml curry powder
  • 5ml ground cumin
  • 2 small Freshline Granny Smith apples, unpeeled and grated or finely chopped
  • +- 450g chicken mince
  • a handful chopped fresh dhania
  • 8 medium size cabbage leaves
  • 200ml pouch Creamy Curry sauce

Recipe Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180 ºC.
  2. Lightly brown the onion, curry powder, cumin, apple and chicken in a pan for 3-4 minutes. Set aside and add the dhania.
  3. Peel off 8 complete cabbage leaves, and pour boiling water over them to soften slightly which helps the parcel rolling process.
  4. Spoon the chicken mixture evenly between the leaves, and roll them up tightly, encasing the filing securely. Secure with a toothpick if required.
  5. Place each parcel, seam-side down and packed close together, into a small casserole dish. Pour over 125ml hot chicken stock. Cover and bake for 30 minutes until the leaves are tender.
  6. Serve with cooked rice, and warmed curry sauce.

Hints & Tips

  • The apple may be substituted with grated sweet potato
  • To remove whole cabbage leaves from the main cabbage, slice off the hard base core section, and peel back individual leaves from this point outwards.
