How to Make Cabbage and Beans Thoran

  • Chop Cabbage & Garlic finely (Do not use a shredder as it will make the Cabbage soggy)
  • Cut Beans at an angel of 45 degrees to get a diagonal shape, this gives the cooked Thoran a good look
  • Break the whole dried Red chilly into 3 or 4 pieces
  • Heat oil is a deep bottomed pan. Add Mustard seeds, allow to pop.
  • Now add rest of the indgredients. Mix well
  • Lower the flame, cover and cook for 10 mins till the Cabbage starts leaving water.
  • At this point leave the pan uncovered & cook for another 15 mins till you can bite into the Cabbage & Beans. At this stage all water must be dried-up & it will not be sticking to each other.
