This Cabbage Rolls recipe brings me back a lot of memories! My recipe collection is incomplete without this childhood favorite and my rendition of one of my Mother’s recipes. Easy, tasty, healthy, and quick.. Steamed Cabbage Rolls.
Sometimes, I wonder if my Mummy loved making these rolls more than feeding them to us!

This easy-to-make snack is popular across Europe, Asia, and Africa and every country has its own variation to it. Some use meat, some use rice but we are today going to make it with paneer! You can also make it with soya chicken or any other fillings that you like.

This is what you need:

  • 8 to 10 whole cabbage leaves
  • 200 gm of minced paneer/ soya/ chicken
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 to 3 tbsp of oil

  • 1 tbsp of garlic
  • Salt, Black Pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp of roasted peanuts
  • 1 tbsp of Dark Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbsp of Schezwan Sauce

How to make it:

  • First step is to separate the cabbage leaves and wash them well.
