Life has turned to a rat race right? I was wondering where we are heading? Days are just flying by and often I feel that 24 hours are not enough for my task completion. My hands are so full that I barely get time my favorite past times, movies and reading. Getting back to track on my profession after a very long sabbatical is draining me out. But I’m enjoying it as I’m a person who does not like to sit idle. My 12th grader has been keeping me on my toes with his board exams too. Please dont think I’m giving excuses for the delayed updates. I was wondering whether this is the same for you all too?

Cabbage Thoran aka stir fried cabbage can be made without coconut or eggs also. Just omit these if your prefer a simple stir fried cabbage. The texture of cabbage should be crisp and crunch rather than making it soggy. So always use a medium high flame so that water content from cabbage will not impart into the wok. Drain the cabbage thoroughly after washing which will also help in reducing the water content. A very simple dish which is made out of simple Indian pantry ingredients. Tempering of mustard seeds are done for the normal cabbage thoran which I’ve left out in this recipe.
Beat the eggs well before adding. Reduce the flame to minimum before adding the eggs. Otherwise you will get big scrambled pieces which will not sink with cabbage. It should be in macro form so that you will not be able differentiate between eggs and cabbage. Thats the highlight of this dish. When you have it with rice the crispiness of the cabbage, soft rice and the scrambled eggs all together will give that extra flavor to your meal. Add some yoghurt and pappad and this meal will turn into delight for anyone. So guys please do try out this regular simple dish with a make over.
Heat kadai, add coconut oil followed by green chillies, ginger, garlic and curry leaves.
Saute for 2 minutes until aromatic. Now add the onions along with some salt. Saute for another 2 minutes till it turns soft & pink.
Once the onions are done add the turmeric powder and combine. Cook for 1 minute and go on to add the grated coconut. Mix up well and cook for 30 seconds. Now add the cabbage and religiously combine everything. Cook on high flame so that all the moisture is absorbed and cabbage remains crisp.
When the cabbage is half cooked add the beaten eggs. Reduce the flame. Keep stirring quickly so that you get a scrambled egg mixture which is coated along with the cabbage. Adjust Salt.
Stir to combine. Heat up slowly for 1 minute. Add in more curry leaves and a dash of virgin coconut oil. Stick the lid on for a minute.
Enjoy with steamed rice
