Before meat cooks through entirely add the safron water,and cook until some water remains. It must not be completely dry.
To your washed and cubed veggies,including the cabbage,add 1 teaspoon chillie powder,tumeric,dhania (coriander) jeeru (cumin) powder. Add this over the meat,along with just enough water to steam the veggies. Do not add too much water,as you want the meat and veggies to cook in their own juices.
When veggies are almost tender,add the grated tomato,salt and sugar to taste,and gharum masala. Stir well.
Garnish with dhania (coriander).
Serve hot with roti,salad and atchar.
