Heat your olive oil over high heat and when it is very hot add in your mustard and cumin seeds, temper for a moment and reduce heat to medium high. Add in your garlic, onions, and green chilies and stir. Once the onions have softened add in your chopped tomatoes and season with salt, chili powder, and turmeric. Mix well. Next thing is to add in your cabbage and stir well. After a minute or so add some water to the mixture. Give it a mix and let slow cook for about 30-45minutes.

Once the cabbage has stewed sprinkle your garam masala and fresh chopped coriander over top and mix together. Remove from heat and let rest for an hour.
