    Cabbage Fry | Cabbage Poriyal | Muttaikose Poriyal | Using Moong Dal

    I have already posted a recipe of cabbage fry, this is a different version of the same recipe. In many special occasions and festivals this recipe is accompanied with mutton(lamb) gravy and rice. It is a best combo/side-dish for spicy non-veg gravies and veg gravies and also for sambar rice and rasam rice. It is almost like a salad and tastes great, it is basically a South Indian food recipe. Cabbage is rich in various nutrients like Protein, phosphorous, copper, Vitamins A, B, and C, and Anti-oxidants. This recipe is so tasty and also maintains the crunchiness of the cabbage. So lets see the preparation.


    1. Cabbage - 1/2 
    2. Big onions - 2 (optional)
    3. Grated carrot - 2 - 3 spoons (optional)
    4. Grated coconut - 5 spoons 
    5. Green gram dal/Moong dal - 2 spoons 
    6. Dry red chillies - 2 
    7. Curry leaves - Few
    8. Mustard seeds - 1/4 spoon 
    9. Urad dal/Black gram - 1/2 spoon (De-skinned)
    10. Salt 
    11. Oil - 2 spoons 


    • Pre-Preparation process:
      • Grate the cabbage or chop them into slender, thin pieces and keep aside.
      • In a sauce pan add 2-3 cups of water and boil well.
      • When the water starts boiling add the green gram dal/moong dal into the boiling water and leave undisturbed for 2 minutes. 
      • Remove from flame. (
      • Remove the moong dal from the boiled water using a strainer and keep aside, do not discard the boiled water.
      • Then add the grated cabbage into the same boiled water and leave undisturbed for 10 minutes. (do not boil)
      • Strain the grated cabbage and keep aside.
    • Preparation Process: 
      • In a fry pan add oil and splutter mustard seeds and urad dal/black gram.
      • Then add dry red chillies and curry leaves and saute for a minute.
      • Now add the chopped onions, grated cabbage, grated carrot and salt and stir well for 3 minutes. Do not over cook.
      • Then add the green gram dal and stir for a minute.
      • Remove from flame.
      • Add grated coconut and mix well.
      • Serve!!!
    TIP 1: Do not cook the cabbage but just add it to boiling water (removed from flame) and leave aside. If you boil it it will become tasteless.

    TIP 2: Onions gives an extra crunchiness, but it is optional.

    TIP 3: You can also steam cook the cabbage for 3 minutes and prepare the same recipe.

    Crunchy side-dish is now ready. Enjoy it as a salad or as a accompaniment for rice!!
