Cabbage Poriyal

Cabbage poriyal is a famous South Indian dish that is sauteed with mustard seeds, curry leaves,

 ground green chili with coconut. In the traditional Poriyal moong or any lentil is also used to make

 it more healthy and nutritious. I like it without dal / lentil so I skipped that ingredient. This is one of

 my favorite side  dish to have with roti / paratha.
