Cabbage Thoran

Deliciously hot and spicy potatoes cooked very simply with a warming bite of mustard seeds and fragrance of curry leaves.

Hari says

Vegetarian Indian food is just delightful, so much so that when you eat a vegetarian Indian diet you just don't seem to miss the meat element at all. I think this is because we are not scared about adding big bold flavours to delicate vegetables. There are so many options when it comes to vegetables and there are so many different styles and regional dishes you can go for. 

In Kerela, 'Thoran' is a generic term used for a dry vegetable curry that can literally be made with any of the local, seasonal vegetables. Keralan cuisine is known to use a lot of green vegetables, such as snake beans, tindori or ivy berries. Unripe jack fruit is common, along with leafy greens as well. 

I had a request for a cabbage curry recently and being a cabbage lover (I mean I love it raw, sauteed in a bit of butter, boiled etc) I thought a Thorna would be perfect, so here you go...

  • Ingredients
  • Method
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp black mustard seeds
  • 2 tbsp chopped, fresh curry leaves
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 dried Kashmiri chillies, each broken into smaller pieces
  • 5cm ginger piece, finely grated
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 250g cabbage, shredded
  • 2 fresh green chillies, sliced
  • 100g fresh coconut, grated

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan or karahi. When it is hot, add the mustard seeds followed by the curry leaves, cumin seeds and dried chillies.
  2. Stir for about 30 seconds, then add the grated ginger, turmeric, salt and black pepper and fry for 30 seconds.
  3. Stir in the cabbage and cook over a medium heat for 5-7 minutes. You may need to add a splash of water.
  4. Once the cabbage is tender, stir in the green chillies and coconut. Heat through for a few minutes and serve.
  5. Perfect with some fresh boiled rice.
