Cabbage Thoran

I have been stuck some were up in the heights of procrastination. I cant say I ignored this blog totally. I did draft couple of posts...but was way too lazy to review them or add pics... Now I am too bored of this that I decided to get back....

I have always felt that cabbage is a dull vegetable. It looks n tastes so dull. This one is a super simple way to spice up cabbage and is extremely common in southern India.  This tastes best if you cut cabbage really thin, so that it get cooked without even sprinkling water.

Cabbage - one pound 
Garlic - 2-3 cloves
Green chillies- 2-3 green chillies
Cumin seeds - half tsp
Coconut - grated; half cup
Turmeric powder- half tsp
Oil - One tbsp
Mustard seeds - half tsp
Red chilli - 1-2
Curry leaves - 3-4

Slice cabbage into thin pieces and keep aside in a big bowl. Crush garlic, chillies and cumin seeds together and add to cabbage. Add grated coconut, turmeric powder and salt to this. Now mix thoroughly. In a pan heat oil, add mustard. When they splutter, add red chillies and curry leaves followed by cabbage mix. Reduce heat and close lid. Stir occasionally till cabbage is cooked.

I love to pair it with yogurt.
