Recipe: Cabbage with Spices and Tomato

1 lb cabbage
2 medium onions
1/4 fresh ginger [I used twice this amount, cause I like ginger]
1 green chile [I used two, but scraped out a fair amount of the seeds]
2 medium tomatoes [I used my most of my pint of little ones]
3 tablespoons oil
1/8 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper salt

[The cookbook says to grate or slice the cabbage finely, but I cut it small and rough and it was good]. Chop the onion, ginger and chile finely. Chop the tomatoes. Heat the oil in a wok. Sauté the onion, ginger and chile until the onion is browned (20 minutes or so). Put in the cabbage. Add the turmeric, coriander and cayenne. Stir and coat. Cover with a lid and cook for 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and salt and cook [book says "until done"...I cooked another 5 minutes or so].
