    This looks like another one of your very tasty offerings. What type of cabbage is that, the cabbage we have here in UK is green and I am not sure you could shred it.

    1. sunipukadiyil says:

      This is light green in colour I didn’t shred it, you have to grate it!

      1. Fergy. says:

        Sorry, I used the wrong word, I understood that it was grated by the way it looked so I have no idea why I typed shred, call it a seniors moment! I still don’t reckon a British cabbage would come out looking like this grated.

      2. sunipukadiyil says:

        Oh no problem Fergy! Try it maybe British cabbage will look like this after grating. Have a great day!
