  • How to Make Cabbage and Beans Thoran:

    1. Chop Cabbage & Garlic finely (Do not use a shredder as it will make the Cabbage soggy)
    2. Cut Beans at an angel of 45 degrees to get a diagonal shape, this gives the cooked Thoran a good look
    3. Break the whole dried Red chilly into 3 or 4 pieces
    4. Heat oil is a deep bottomed pan. Add Mustard seeds, allow to pop.
    5. Now add rest of the indgredients. Mix well
    6. Lower the flame, cover and cook for 10 mins till the Cabbage starts leaving water.
    7. 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.
