Cabbage Thoran / Curry

The last vegetable I take from my fridge is cabbage.  I am not a huge fan of cabbage. I went to one of my friends place and she had made this cabbage thoran. Thoran is a Keralite dish and it is very tasty. I use almost the same ingredients for my version of cabbage poriyal but I love this thoran.  This time definitely cabbage is not the last one from my fridge 🙂
