Cabbage Rolls in Tomato Gravy

Sumptuous and tongue-tickling, the Cabbage Rolls in Tomato Gravy is an ideal package of taste and good health. This delectable continental one-dish meal features cabbage leaves stuffed with crunchy veggies and drowned in a tangy tomato gravy. What an interesting way to top up on vitamin A and protein! Although this recipe calls for a rather long process, from preparing the gravy and chopping the veggies to arranging the dish and baking it, the end result is flavourful and worth a try. The use of low-calorie cabbage to roll up the stuffing, and low-fat paneer as a topping, reduces the calorie count of this delicacy.
