Muttaikose Poriyal | Cabbage Stir Fry

Today I am posting a simple and healthy stir fry recipe- Cabbage poriyal. It takes just few minutes to prepare this stir fry. It can be had with  almost everything Rice & Puli kulambu, Rice & dhal, Chappathi and I use leftovers to make sandwich too. 

Cabbage Poriyal
What are the ingredients needed?

Oil, 2- 3 tablespoons
Mustard Seeds, 1/2 teaspoon
Channa dhal/Kadala Paruppu, 1 tablespoon
Onion (finely chopped), 1 medium sized
Green chillies, 2- 3 nos.
Curry leaves, a sprig
Shredded cabbage, 4 cups
Salt, to taste
Shredded coconut, 1/4 cup or more (as desired)

How it is made?
  1. Heat oil in a skillet and add mustard seeds and when they crack add channa dhal and fry for a minute, then add the chopped onions, green chillies and curry leaves and fry till the onions turn translucent.
  2. Then add the shredded cabbage, salt to taste, sprinkle little water and mix well and cover and cook, cabbage has water content so it doesn't require much water to be added to cook. I don't add water at all to cook. But stand near it to stir it to avoid it burning. Also cabbage gets cooked in minutes. Once it is cooked, turn off the heat.
  3. Add shredded coconut and mix well and serve it.
Cabbage Stir Fry
  • I have shredded the cabbage using  food processor. You can finely chop it too. 
  • Instead of green chillies you can use red chillies too or even the combination of both.
  • You can add a pinch of turmeric too to this stir fry. My mom adds it.
