Place cabbage in a food processor and pulse until finely shredded. Transfer shredded cabbage into a bowl and set aside. Preheat oven 400ºF/200ºC. Lightly grease a baking sheet and set aside.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat, add onion, garlic and cook until onion is soft. Stir in coriander, cumin and cook for another minute. Add shredded cabbage and cook, while stirring, for about 5 minutes, or until cabbage is tender.

Season with salt to taste. Transfer cabbage to a bowl and allow to cool. Stir in chickpea flour and mix well to form a dough. You may need to add water if the dough isn't holding together.

Shape cabbage dough into equal sized balls.Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for 25- 30 minutes, turning after 15 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the gravy.


Heat oil or water in a large saucepan on medium heat, add onion and cook until soft, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and ginger, cook for about 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes and cook for another 2 minutes.

Add curry powder, paprika, ( add 1/4 cup chickpea flour only if nut-free) stirring constantly for about 1 minute. Stir in coconut milk, water, cayenne and salt to taste. Cover saucepan and bring to a boil.

Reduce to simmer for about 10 minutes, meanwhile blend cashews with water. Add cashew mixture to curry gravy and stir. Cook until thickened. Turn off heat, add Cabbage Dumplings and stir. Garnish with cilantro leaves.
