Take a cooking vessel, add cabbage into it, add little salt, and turmeric mix well, cover it with lid and cook on medium flame. (By adding salt, cabbage looses out some water and it will be cooked in that water it self, otherwise you can add very little water)

Check in between and make sure that cabbage is not burring, if required add little water and cook. When it almost cooked, remove the lid and cook for another 2 or till the water get evaporated.

Remove from the vessel and let it cool down a bit.
