Cabbage Thoran

Cabbage Thoran, this is a popular Kerala dish. Method of preparation is similar to how we make cabbage poriyal but the main difference is that the thoran is cooked in coconut oil and coconut paste will be added at the end of preparation. This will go well with any gravy or curry you make for steamed rice.
