How to store and reheat

When you are ready to store this Cabbage Curry, place the leftovers in a container with a tight lid. This dish will stay fresh in the refrigerator for about 3-5 days. To reheat it, you can either place the curry in a microwave-safe bowl to warm in the microwave, or you can reheat it in a pan on the stovetop, stirring occasionally until heated through.
