Cabbage Thoran

Preparation time: 15 mins | Cooking time: 15 mins

Thoran does not need any introduction to malayalees because it is one of the most common dishes. Having said that the dish has its variations as you travel across Kerala. Thoran is one of the main dish in any sadya (feast) and 9 out of 10 times the vegetable used is cabbage.

Grated coconut or desiccated coconut-1cup
Green chillies-3
Cumin seeds-1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds-1/2 tsp
Curry leaves-few
Oil-1 tbsp
Salt to taste

Heat oil in a pan. Splutter the mustard seeds, then add the curry leaves & the chopped onions, saute for 2 mins. Now add the finely chopped cabbage, salt & turmeric powder and mix well. Close with a lid & cook( do not add water). Make a coarse paste of coconut, cumin seeds and green chillies without water and add this to the cabbage, mix well. Cook on a low flame until done.

(Cabbage should never be overcooked, it tastes good when it is slightly crunchy). This goes well with rice & sambar.
