Cabbage Thoran ~ Stir Fried Cabbage

Cabbage stir fried with coconut, shallot, garlic, ginger and spices gives it a unique taste that is so good with cooked red rice.


3 cups - Cabbage, chopped

Coarsely grind

1/2 cup - Freshly grated coconut
1/4 tsp - Jeera / Cumin
3 to 4 - Green chili
A very small piece - Ginger
2 flakes - Garlic
1 big - Shallot
1 sprig - Curry leaves


1 tsp - Mustard seeds
5 to 6 big - Shallots, chopped
2 sprigs - Curry leaves


1 ) Mix shredded and chopped cabbage with the coarsely ground coconut mixture. With hand mix in very well. Sprinkle salt to taste and mix with hand well.

2 ) Heat a kadai /wok with coconut oil, add mustard and pop it. Then add shallots and curry leaves and fry lightly. Then add the cabbage mixture and stir in. Close with a lid and cook on low heat for 4 to 5 minutes. In between just give a quick stir. Let the cabbage cook in it's steam. Do not over cook the cabbage. Let it have a bit of crunchiness. Take off the heat and serve.

This is my usual side dish with some kerala fish curry and rice.
