  • Small White Cabbage -1 (approx 600 grams)

How to Make White Cabbage Thoran

  • Remove the outer leaves and cut the Cabbage into pieces, then wash well under running water.
  • Cut Cabbage into wedges. Remove and discard the tough inner core.
  • Shred Cabbage using a knife, although shredding it in the food processor is easier, as it becomes watery.
  • Heat Oil / Butter in a non-stick pan.
  • Add remaining ingredients and cook uncovered on medium flame for 5 – 8 mins and is ready.
  • By covering the water does not escape making it soggy. Add Salt as mentioned at the start, this helps the Cabbage release water.
  • Serve hot with Ghee drizzled on Brown Rice, Dal Curry, a generous dollop of home made Yoghurt, microwave oven toasted Pappadam (Poppadam) and Lime Pickle.
