Step by step South Indian Cabbage Beans Poriyal Recipe
As for the other Poriyal recipes, this Cabbage Beans Poriyal recipe requires very few ingredients. Finely chop the cabbage and green beans. Also we need some grated coconut for garnishing.
1. We need to semi-boil the vegetables in boiling water for 3 to 4 minutes. As we are going to stir fry the vegetables we need them a little pre cooked. Also when semi-boiling the cabbage and green beans add some salt to reduce the cooking time. Once the cabbage and beans are cooked, strain the water and keep the vegetables aside.
2. Now we will stir fry cabbage and green bean. Before that we will temper the spices in a pan. For that take a teaspoon of oil in pan and heat it. Now add mustard seeds (rai) and let them crackle. Once mustard seed is tempered add a pinch of asafoetida (hing) and sliced green chilies. If you don’t like your Poriyal to be hot, de-seeds the green chili before adding them in oil. The heat is in seeds so remove seeds if you want.
3. Once the spices are tempered, add semi-boiled and chopped cabbage and beans. Season with some turmeric powder (haldi) and salt to taste. Mix everything well and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes.
