Cabbage Thoran / Curry

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 :)

Preparation time : 10 minutes
No of Servings : 4
Spice level : 2

Ingredients:

  • Cabbage – 1/2 (finely chopped)
  • Onion – 1/3 cup (finely chopped)
  • Green chillies – 5 to 6 (finely chopped)
  • Ginger – 1/2″ (finely chopped)
  • Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Coconut – 1/3 cup (grated)
  • Oil – 1 tbsp
  • Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Cumin seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Salt – to taste

Method of Preparation:

  1. Mix cabbage, coconut, green chillies, ginger, turmeric powder, salt and keep it aside.
  2. Heat oil in a nonstick pan and add the mustard seeds.
  3. When it starts spluttering add the cumin seeds.
  4. Then add the chopped onions and fry till they become translucent.
  5. Then add the cabbage mix and fry for 7 minutes without adding water.
  6. Serve hot with rice.

    I love cabbage thoran, adding a tablespoon of urad dal while seasoning will enhance the flavor and taste.
