Cabbage Upkari


Cabbage Upkari (Cabbage Thoran). A simple, Konkani style cabbage stir fry. Konkani by the way is the official language in Goa and Goa obviously being seated on India map (Baingan Bharta, Kashmiri Vegetable Soup, Aam ka Achaar, Andra Sambar & Tofu Manchurian). There's definitely various, hell of lot of cooking style to how you can stir fry cabbage in an Indian style. At the end of it all, its up to you.of course. You can refer to recipes or perhaps you can coin your own (Vegetable Kadhi, Vegan Potato Curry, Indian Mango Chutney, Kurkuri Bhindi, Carrot Poriyal & Beans Thoran) because nothing is brain cracking for stir frying cabbage and you can opt for a couple of ingredients or add other much more suitable ingredients for a lavish kinda Cabbage Upkari which definitely is a vegetarian dish. My this style Cabbage Upkari? Sliced cabbage (Spinach Tofu Stir Fry) alongside chana dal (Chloe Masala & Dhal Rice), cumin seeds, onion, green chilli and turmeric powder. That's it. Tempting vibrant yellow hue and satisfying Cabbage Upkari.

Ingredients
1/2 cabbage (about 400g) - slice/shred
2 tbsp kadalai paruppu/chana dal (soak for an hour and rinse) 
1 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 onion - slice
1 green chilli - slice to medium size pieces
1 tsp turmeric/kunyit powder
2 tbsp oil
Salt to taste

Method
Heat oil and saute onion and chilli.
Add cumin seeds and dhal.
Stir until they splatter.  
Put the rest of the ingredients (cabbage, turmeric and salt) 
Stir to soften cabbage.
Remove from heat.

  22. Simple dishes are actually the ones that are the most delicious. My Mother made cabbage stir fry so frequently..and we loved it. This one is even better with the channa dal. Google definitely has lived up to it's name. It is so important to provide that kind of service to build customer loyalty.
