Cabbage Thoran - A Thoran is a dry vegetable stir fry/curry from Kerala prepared with any fresh vegetables. It works great with most vegetables - even brussel sprouts! This is a very easy and quick stir fry which works beautifully as a side dish with a soup and it also goes well with rice or roti.
Heat the oil in a large pot until hot, then add the curry leaves and mustard seeds.
When the seeds crackle, add the cumin seeds.
Saute for 2 minutes before adding in the onion. Cook for 10 minutes, until golden brown and then add the ginger and green chilli. Cook for 2 minutes.
Now blend the coconut and garlic with some water to create a paste. Add to the pot with the cabbage and stir for around 5 minutes.
Add the salt and turmeric, then take off the heat. Season with a little more salt.
Serve with a squeeze of lemon juice.
This dish is also made using other vegetable such as beans or beetroot.
