stir fry cabbage /south indian style cabbage(muttaikose)poriyalYou might think it’s not so big kind of recipe to share as it’s a daily happening item at every South Indian homes but this mention of this post is as-usual for the unknown people who are actually beginners in cooking.The presence of Poriyal is an absolute necessity for a complete SouthIndian lunch menu serving as a best accompaniment for sambar and even for simple rasams.In a whole the one name poriyal is so needed throught  SouthIndia called with different names as Thoran in Kerala stir fry cabbage /south indian style cabbage(muttaikose)poriyaland Palya in Karnataka.I like my cabbage (stir fry cabbage) to be little crunchy in taste and if it’s cooked soft my taste-buds don’t accept the very taste of it personally.For this poriyal with cabbage even other veggies can be combined till now I have tried it with carrots and peas combinations it tasted very good and of-course when peas are in season you can add it to this poriyal.While cooking moong dhal cook it just right and don’t over cook it and instead of green chillies you can add redchillies it will be equally good.You can cook this without adding moong dal too its optional.
