This dish is such a beauty with red cabbage or purple cabbage whatever you call this. Red cabbage is just AMAZING. So full of vim and vigour. Oh! The vibrant color, a nice and crunchy texture, and awesome taste. I just love the raw crunchy texture this cabbage provides.
This surely is delicious and full of good health. And that’s why I have something unique and mouth-wateringly good to share with you all, which is the super awesome ‘Potato Paneer Stuffed Roasted Red Cabbage Cones with Sriracha Sauce’. Even the name itself is tantalizing. Isn’t it?
And do you guys want to know the reason why I made this stuffed roasted red cabbage cones, and how I had a notion that these would come out scrumptious?
Welp, the first time I made these cones was a couple of months back. That time when I bought red cabbage at home, I thought I will make a nice wrap out of them. But later I felt like, “No, not wrap. I should make something else.” But what? I brainstormed, and decided to push myself an extra mile that time.
So I let my exploring-self play, because it was continuously propelling me to make something new. And that is how my initial idea of making red cabbage wrap transformed into making cabbage cones.
Again at that time when I was finally ready to make these cones for the first time, I thought I had to go back to the drawing board to come up with some other exciting ideas.
See, I am never satisfied. That’s a hidden creative side of me, which always nudges me to try something new. I have made many recipes with red cabbage but never a cone. So why couldn’t it be cones? That time it had to be cones.
And then, I reaffirmed myself and got glued with this cone idea.
And here I am with this Potato Paneer Stuffed Roasted Red Cabbage Cones with Sriracha Sauce. Believe me, I was floored by the taste when I took the first bite. The heavenly taste totally won fair and square. That was it.
Some of my buddies say that I am obsessed with colors. Yes, I am. Yes, I am. I love all bright and vibrant colors. And I love to use all those natural colors in my food too.
Do you see that stunning purple? Isn’t that gorgeous color?
Just looking at these cones was a fun ride for my spicy taste buds. That just made my day!!
And umm, I am just now realizing that these cones have very less oil. Seriously, they are made with little oil.
Prepare stuffing. Then just put these in the oven and wait. Honestly, the waiting time is the hardest part. I think I need to learn patience when it comes to food. 😉
And drizzle some Sriracha sauce and mayonnaise. Sprinkle some sesame seeds, and they are DONE.
I love Thai food. I love Chinese food, and I obviously love Indian food — you know, that’s my genes speaking! 🙂
And that’s why I made a FUSION dish here. A bit of this and a bit of that. I might have named these Indo-Thai-Chinese dish or something similar. But it would have been a bit complicated. So for the sake of all Foodies like me, I kept the things simple and name it the simplest. All things crystal clear.
It’s been so long that I haven’t talked about the weather.
So let’s talk about it now. I think Autumn would be here soon. Therefore, I am sharing this colourful dish to welcome the new colorful season. And all these beautiful colors you see here in this dish are totally autum approved.
Why did I share this recipe today only?
It’s raining here for a couple of days. So a sudden change in climate made me CRAVE for some cozy autumn like food. And I made these cones again. Unlike all the other times I was determined this time to share these exotic cones on my blog. So that you all can savour this warm dish. 🙂
You might think that cold weather should make me crave for some cozy soup or something similar. But I am still in the summery mood, so I thought wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy something which is autumn like, and yet remind me of some warm weather. So I wanted to come up with a dish which can be eaten in summer and autumn. And these cones suited the best.
Anyways, you never know if we get to enjoy some more summer. May be some more glimpse of nice, warm weather is waiting round the corner. That’s what I call keeping summer spirit high! 🙂
Let me tell you about the stuffing of these cones. This is basically like a stir-fry, but so much more in terms of flavors. And making this is quick and so much fun! This stuffing is spicy, sweet-sour, velvety and flavorsome.
It has mashed potatoes, finely grated paneer, chopped garlic, chopped onions, chopped green bell pepper, peas, ground pepper, sea salt, soya sauce, little honey and sriracha sauce. So it’s honeyed. It’s garlicky. It’s tangy. And it’s flavorful.
Mmmm! That’s spicy, it’s true. But sometimes only the word ‘spicy’ is just enough to explain the food. These red cabbage cones are a perfect healthy food for anytime.
All in all, these cones are wonderful and also so quick and easy to make. Yeah! Awesome, isn’t it?
These cones are flavor bombs full of freshness and aroma! And now we can all go eat a number of red cabbage cones as we want, because they are so light on stomach.
These are so easy to make on a busy weeknight. And they come out of the oven in about 20 minutes.
One more important thing which I should tell you. They are gluten free too. And if you omit paneer they are VEGAN too. Clearly, I love paneer so my version of this dish was not VEGAN.
Let’s learn to make these Gluten Free Potato Paneer Stuffed Roasted Red Cabbage Cones with Sriracha Sauce.
Cut 5 cabbage cups in equal halves. Roll them into a cone shape and secure them with a toothpick. You can remove toothpick at the time of serving, if you wish.
Warm enough water in a pan with 2 tsp salt. Soak cabbage cones in warm salted water for 25-30 minutes. Drain and keep aside. Heat 2 tbsp oil in another pan. Add chopped garlic and saute for 2-3 minutes or till they turn brown.
Add chopped onions and chopped green bell pepper. Saute for 3-4 minutes.
Add green peas, soya sauce, honey, ground pepper, vinegar and salt. Let them cook for another 2-3 minutes. Add potatoes and paneer. Mix well to make a soft and mushy mixture. Cook for 5 more minutes. Add sriracha sauce and saute for another minute. Remove from heat and let it cool. Preheat oven at 150°C/ 300°F.
Now the fun part. Fill the prepared cones with stuffing. Brush cones with little oil and bake them for 10 minutes. Turn them and bake again for 2-3 minutes. Remove from oven. Transfer these cones in serving tray. Sprinkle some sesame seeds and drizzle sriracha sauce and mayonnaise. Granish with basil leaves, and top with roasted peanuts.
