Sodhi (coconut milk stew)

Sodhi, basically a runny coconut stew and a nice pairing for putu mayam/string hoppers or rice and side dishes. Plain sodhi may be the preferred one but I like to fill it up with vegetables. That way, it becomes a vegetarian one pot dish and this version, quite straightforward like any other no-oil sodhi, just to simmer over low heat but with lots of Chinese cabbage.

1/2 litre fresh coconut milk
1 medium size tomato (slice thinly)
1 medium size onion (slice)
3 green chillies (slit into 2 and cut into pieces)
1 teaspoons of fenugreek
1 teaspoons of turmeric/kunyit powder (kunyit)
Lime/lemon juice - as needed
1/2 Chinese cabbage (cut into big pieces)
Salt to taste

Add all ingredients except cabbage and lime juice in a pot.
Simmer over low heat until just heated through..
Add cabbage and lime juice. 
Stir and remove from heat.
