Sodhi (coconut milk stew)

Hi guys! Shall we now straightaway get down this humble coconut milk stew? We shall without much ado. Sodhi by far is none other, as I have already said, is an Indian coconut milk stew, obviously, coconut milk is the core ingredient right (Spinach Sambar/Dhal Curry)? Of course. My this sodhi however is, I wouldn't say out of this world version, just that I added some Chinese cabbage. Wanna know why, I bet you are curious to find out? Actually, no particular reason. Not at all. I guess maybe because I didn't want to cook another veg or other dishes (Crab Curry, Kembung Assam, Assam Fish Curry & Mutton Soup/Sup Kambing). Simple as that, and as non appealing it is due to picture not perfect,  you should confidently go ahead and replicate this sodhi of mine. 

5 cups fresh coconut milk
1 medium size tomato (slice thinly)
1 medium size onion (slice)
3 green chillies (slit into 2 and cut into pieces)
1 teaspoons of fenugreek
1 teaspoons of turmeric/kunyit powder (kunyit)
Lime/lemon juice - as needed
1/2 Chinese cabbage (cut into big pieces)
Salt to taste

Add all ingredients except cabbage and lime juice in a pot.
Simmer over low heat until just heated through..
Add cabbage and lime juice. 
Stir and remove from heat.
