Thoran - Indian style stir-fry with Cabbage+carrot+green peas.

This is one of my favorite mix veggie stir-fry from everyday cooking. It is very simple to cook and definitely one good healthy item in daily meals.

Cabbage +Carrot +Green peas Stir fry

  1. Half cabbage (pick small size) give long strip cut
  2. One cup frozen green peas (I always use petite green peas for tender sweet taste)
  3. 3 Carrots - give stick cut.
  4. Two green chillies.
  5. Two strips of curry leaves.
  6. Cilantro.
  7. 1 tb-spoon Oil of your choice.
  1. Take any big size broad open pot....add one tb-spoon oil. Do not heat oil too much...add one strip of curry chilli....fry it for 30 seconds.
  2. Add carrots first - Stir for 2 minutes on medium high flame.
  3. Add cabbage and green peas - Stir for 5 minutes. Add some salt and little cilantro...reduce flame to medium low....stir for another 5 minutes.
  4. Add another strip of curry leaves and little more cilantro and mix well. It is that simple to make.

    Note:- You may add half tsp jeera while you add curry leaf and green chilli.Also garnish with little fresh grated coconut.

Here is similar stir-fry with addition of french cut frozen green beans.
