When the mustard seeds begin to pop, add the ginger, stir, then add the cabbage and peas. Sprinkle the spices on top, add the water and give everything a good mix.

  • Open the valve to quick release any remaining pressure.

Please make sure to use freshly sliced cabbage for this recipe. Pre-cut cabbage may become overcooked/mushy under pressure.
