Cabbage thoran / poriyal

This thoran is made from cabbage and onion that has been chopped into small pieces.

Chop the cabbage into really small pieces. Chop onion and green chillies also into small pieces. Heat coconut oil in a wok. When the oil is hot, saute the chopped onion-green chilly mixture. Add the chopped cabbage and saute. Mix in your base – grated coconut, turmeric powder, cumin seeds and garlic, lightly pounded together. Remove the cabbage from the fire when the contents turn slightly brown.

You could also pound together only the turmeric, cumin seeds and garlic and add the coconut in its grated form.
