Serves 4

Ingredients

1 large red cabbage, finely shredded
3 red chillies, halved, deseeded and chopped
large piece fresh root ginger, peeled and finely sliced
4 star anise
4 garlic cloves, chopped
75ml rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp soy sauce
50g caster sugar
4 spring onions, finely sliced
toasted sesame seeds
1 tbsp sesame oil

1) Tip all the ingredients, except the spring onions, sesame seeds and oil, into a large pan with a lid, and bring to a simmer. Cook over a low heat for 25-30 mins until all the liquid has evaporated and continue to cook, stirring regularly, until the juices become really sticky and glaze the cabbage.

2) Stir through half the spring onions and sesame seeds and pile into a bowl. Serve scattered with rest of the spring onions and sesame seeds and drizzled with the sesame oil.
