Spicy Braised Cabbage

This is a delicious Tanzanian dish and goes well served alongside the coconut rice and kuku ya paka. I usually mix them all together as I'm eating. If it's too spicy, cut down on the amount of cayenne pepper.

1 onion, chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
2 T. butter
1 T. vegetable oil
1 head of cabbage, chopped
1 t. salt
1/2-1 t. curry powder
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. powdered ginger
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
1 t. paprika

Heat oil and butter over med. high heat until butter is melted. Saute onion, garlic, and cabbage until soft. Season with salt, curry powder, garlic powder, ginger, cayenne pepper, and paprika. Serve with kuku ya paka and coconut rice.
