Purple Cabbage and Peas Poriyal  – South India style Cabbage & Peas stir-fry.

Cabbage Poriyal or Cabbage Upkari is a simple South Indian style preparation where shredded cabbage is sauteed in a tempering of mustard seeds, udad dal and spices. In South Indian cuisine, Poriyal/Thoran/Upkari holds a special place as a staple side-dish. Today I have used purple cabbage to make the poriyal and have also added green peas to it. The combination of purple cabbage and green peas makes the dish not only a visual delight but also a nutritious addition to the diet.

About the recipe

 Purple Cabbage and peas Poriyal is a delightful twist to the conventional poriyal. This combination not only adds a burst of colour but gives a new dimension of taste to the traditional cabbage poriyal. 

The preparation of  Purple Cabbage and peas Poriyal follows the same recipe of traditional poriyal.  Shredded purple cabbage and green peas are added to a tenmpering of mustard seeds, hing, curry leaves, green chillies, garlic and onion.  Once the veggies are cooked, freshly grated coconut is added and is finally garnished with chopped coriander leaves.

The tempering of mustard seeds, udad dal, curry leaves and addition of fresh coconut imparts the South Indian flavour to this dish.

Purple Cabbage and peas Poriyal can be served as a side dish with dal rice, sambar rice or can be paired with phulkas.
