Cabbage & Peas Poriyal

Its a very simple side dish, best suits for any spicy kuzhuambu or curry.
One of my colleague's grandma use to cook this way, daily she gets some veggies prepared in this simple method. Non spicy, very very little oil and grated coconut is option, if you wanna use coconut add the grated coconut when you are going to switch off  the stove, by that your coconut will be fresh and it will not add cholesterol to your recipe.


Cabbage - 250 gms
Peas - 50 gms
Jeera -  1/8 tsp
Curry leaves
Grated ginger - 1/4 tsp
coconut oil - 1/2 tsp
grated coconut - 1 tbsp


Clean and chop the cabbage.
Cook the peas 3/4th and keep aside.
Heat oil, temper with curry leaves, jeera, 1 green chilly chopped and grated ginger.
Add the cabbage and sauté.
Add 1/2 cup of water and peas and close the lid.
Allow the veggies to get cooked in the water.
when it is cooked 3/4th add salt.
Finally before switching off add the grated coconut.

You can cook veggies like carrot and peas, cabbage and carrot in this way, it best suits for you little one's lunch box
If its for your little one then don't even add green chilly.
