Cabbage poriyal recipe - Sometimes when I am confused thinking what to cook for side dish, suddenly poriyal flashes in my mind. Cabbage is definitely not a favorite vegetable in my house. But when it is made in a proper way by using fresh coconut, it becomes a tasty accompaniment for rotis and sambar rice. Cabbage is a humble vegetable which is available throughout the year. I always store at least half a kilo of cabbage in my fridge to use it when required. Coconut is abundantly used in South Indian cuisine. Especially, fresh coconut adds extra taste to the poriyal and without coconut, it doesn't taste well. Here is easy and quick poriyal recipe.
