Curry cabbage is another quick dish that I could prepare for my husband seven days a week and he would still be happy to eat. He usually enjoys it with brown rice or quinoa and a salad with avocados. So this afternoon as he went to pick up our daughter Devannah from work,

I prepared my cabbage curry Jamaican style using thyme and coconut milk for a creamy taste. Jamaican Cabbage Curry is different from Indian Cabbage Curry because of the different seasonings.

I decided to surprise him with one of his favorite dishes. He also likes my other curry dishes, Jamaican Spicy Curry Potatoes, Chickpea Curry with Quinoa, Thai Coconut Curry Tofu and Butternut Squash Curry.

    This is a nice simple recipe with great combination of ingredients. I will say however that the results are very dependent on the coconut milk used. To get the results like shown in the photos I assume you used a very light coconut milk – in contrast to the very thick high fat milk I use in Thai cooking. I anticipated and used half a can with 1-1/4 cup of liquids and it still came out a bit thick and heavy on coco milk flavor. Added 2 Thai red chilis and 1/2 tsp of garam masala to round it out. I will make again with lite coco milk. Very tasty.

    This is amazing and quick to make. I have chronic illnesses, so I like to look for easy recipes so I don’t need to be on my feet too long. It’s also good bc you can chop and get the seasonings ready a day in advance, so cooking is even quicker for me. I like to add additional carrots and cauliflower goes well with this dish.
    My dad and everyone on his side of the family are from Jamaica, as well. I gave some to a Jamaican family friend who loved it and I gave her the link to your recipe. Will have to make some for my grandparents next. :) thank u!

    I have made this a couple of times. It is even faster (already so quick) if you use an Instant Pot. 2 minutes low pressure and 5 natural pressure release after onions and garlic sautéed. I end up adding about 4 carrots and as many cloves of garlic. Great recipe!

      Thank you Living With The Essentials for the directions using an Instant Pot. I appreciate it, loving the extra carrots and garlic.

    Hmmmm, your recipe doesn’t say when to add the cabbage, so I’m assuming it’s when the water and coco milk is added. Giving this a try.

    Is there no curry in this recipe?

    • Michelle Blackwood
      April 29, 2018

      Curry is a blend of spices, the yellow is the turmeric. So yes it is there, I add it from scratch, you are welcome to use your favorite blend, about 2 tablespoons.

    Hey Michelle. I don’t have all these separate spices but I have a curry spice. Could I substitute the curry spice for all of them. And if so how much would I sub it for? Looks delicious!!

    • Michelle Blackwood
      February 7, 2018

      Hi Cristin, 2 tablespoons is usually fine. Hope you enjoy!

    I noticed that the recipe doesn’t call for curry powder. Is that correct?

    • Michelle Blackwood
      January 15, 2018

      That’s correct, curry powder is just a blend of spices and most contain coriander, turmeric, cumin, which I included in the recipe but you are free to substitute those ingredients I mentioned for curry powder. The next time you have an opportunity and you are at the supermarket look at the different brands of curry powder and you find that no two brand has the same ingredients.

    I just made this dish and it’s amazing. The flavor profile from the spices and the coconut milk was insanely good. I made the dish in my pressure cooker which intensified the flavors also. I served the cabbage over jasmine rice. This will definitely be a go to recipe for me from now on. Thank you.

    Hi Michelle!

    I am making this Curry Cabbage…but I noticed that you don’t use curry seasoning. Is this because the cumin, thyme, turmeric & corainder is what makes the curry seasoning? For some reason, I always thought that curry was a separate spice, a spice of it’s own. I hope I am making sense here… Thank you in advance for any help!

    Blessings,

    Diane

    • Michelle Blackwood
      April 9, 2017

      Hello Diane, that’s exactly what I did, I broke down the spices because I wanted the recipe to come out exactly how I made it because no two curry powder formula are the same. Jamaican curry taste different from Thai curry and Indian curry if you get me
