Danish style curry – Kylling I Karry

The other night we made homemade kebabs with all the trimmings. Which left me with 3/4 of a cabbage. Normally I struggle with cabbage and ends up wasting it. Hence, I tried to find a use of it. Suddenly I was reminded of a very Danish meal “Boller I Karry”  translated to English it is “Meatballs in Curry”.This is a very child friendly dish and a favourite with many kids in Denmark, the curry is very mild almost sweet. 

However, the dish I ended up making is a variation of this, instead if includes chicken breast and cabbage! Still got 1/3 of the cabbage left. 

The husband loved it, said that it was exactly what he expected it would be when I told him I was making Danish curry. Froze one portion for me to eat one day.
