Red Cabbage Thoran

Confusing. Red or purple cabbage? In my own general consensus, I have decided to call it red cabbage, though it is somewhat more purplish. Does not matter I suppose because guaranteed  I am not referring to yellow cabbage. Ditto. I say nothing more, except to show you the cooking to way to Red Cabbage Thoran. Remember my Beans Thoran? What is thoran, are you questioning me or you are asking yourself. Thoran is nothing more but a stir fry (Four Angled Beans Tempe, Tofu Green Bean & Kacang Buncis Tempe). Basically an Indian stir fry. I did my style to my thoran, nope, not a copied version. Then again, how different can an Indian thoran be? Don't you think we need the common Indian ingredients? Of course. My version on the other hand I reckon must be hailed as the different than the rest version. Red cabbage, tomato, coconut, shallots, oil and salt. Simple easy-preasy right? You are right. Pair Red Cabbage Thoran along Jeera Rice, Dum AlooRasam or Sambar, and I bet you will be up and about for a mini vegetarian home style thali set.  

250g (about 1/2) purple cabbage - shredded
1 medium size (abt 90g) tomato  - sliced into thin pieces
2 tbsp grated coconut
4 shallots - sliced
2 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

When oil is heated, saute shallots.
Add all other ingredients.
Quickly stir fry over high heat for a couple of minutes and dish out.
