Cabbage Thogayal

Thanks to Arundati from whom I got inspiration for making this cabbage thogayal.  I made this thogayal along with bottle gourd kootu and tomato rasam. This was a real hit and my husband couldn't find what thogayal it is.  The taste was really awesome and I think I will do this more often from now on. Here goes the recipe..

  1. Cabbage - 1 cup (chopped)
  2. Onion - 1 (medium sized; chopped)
  3. Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
  4. Urad dhall - 2 tbsp
  5. Red chillies - 3 (acc to taste)
  6. salt to taste
  7. Coconut - 1 tsp (grated)
  8. Oil - 1 tsp
Pre heat oil in a pan, fry mustard seeds, urad dhall & red chillies to golden brown and keep it aside. In the same pan, saute onion for few minutes and add cabbage and saute for few minutes adding a hand full of water and let both the vegetable cook. When the raw smell goes away, let it cool and grind it along with the mustard and urad dhall, coconut and required amount of water (add water accordingly). It tastes really good with hot rice, roti and idly and I am sure it will go well with bread also....
