Here, warming notes of garam masala, freshly grated ginger, and a bit of red chile turn a head of cabbage into a satisfying side dish. If you like things spicy, use a super-hot chile, like a Scotch bonnet.
In a 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt the butter over medium heat until it begins to brown and smell nutty, about 4 minutes. Add the oil and heat for 1 minute. Add the onion and cook until softened and browned, about 6 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger, garam masala, chile, turmeric, and 1 tsp. salt. Cook, stirring constantly, until the chile softens, about 3 minutes.
Add the cabbage, stir well, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, about 10 minutes. Season to taste with more salt and garam masala. Serve immediately.
