Cabbage Thoran - Cabbage Stir Fry

I learnt this particular recipe from my MIL. This goes well with any puzhi Kuzhambu or Sambar.
Very simple steps to be followed with simple ingredients.

Ingredients :
Cabbage - 1 cup
Green Chilies - 1 or 2
Boiled moong dal - 1/4 cup(do not cook completely as we do it for sambar, should be separate by itself )
Onion - 1
Coconut ( Shredded ) - 2 to 3 tbsp
Salt - as required

For tempering :
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Urad dal- 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - few

Preparation :

  • Heat oil in a pan , add the tempering ingredients and saute them for few mins.
  • Add onion , green chilies and give it a quick stir. Go ahead and add the cabbage and cook until they softened.
  • Add boiled moong dal and combine them well. When cabbage is cooked , finally add the shredded coconut and ready to be served.
Note :
You can use coconut oil instead of normal vegetable oil. That gives the perfect taste.
