Stir fry Cabbage with coconut/ Cabbage Thoran

One thing I secretly love whenever I prepare 'thoran' is the aroma from the coconut-shallot-chilli grind....One whiff of this mix I already dream of eating it. In my opinion this combination gives 'thoran' its unique flavor. Cabbage thoran is something I prepare very often. I personally prefer a higher percentage of coconut. 


  1. Cabbage             -   1/2 the medium size, chopped.
  2. Oil                     -   1 tbsp
  3. Mustard seeds     -   1/2 tsp
  4. Garlic                 -   6 - 7 pods chopped
  5. Turmeric powder -   1/2 tsp
  6. Green chili          -   3 - 4 nos
  7. Shallots              -   7 - 8 nos
  8. Coconut             -   1 cup shredded
  9. Salt                   -   As req.
  10. Curry leaves       -   A few.

  1. In a mixer add green chili, shallots and coconut and grind in to a fine mixture.  
  2. Heat oil in a pan. Splutter mustard seeds and add garlic and curry leaves.
  3. When the garlic is lightly brown, Add cabbage and turmeric powder.
  4. Stir and close the lid for 1-2 min.
  5. Open the lid and add the coconut grind-mix, salt. Mix everything together.
  6. Cover and cook on medium heat until the cabbage is cooked through(5-8 min).
  7. Remove from heat source. Let it cool without the lid.
  8. Serve and enjoy...:)
