I have mentioned earlier that J isn’t too particular about variety when it comes to food. In other words, give him typical Kerala food everyday and he is a happy man πŸ™‚ I just love the way his face lights up when he sees the Kerala spread. A typical Kerala meal consists of brown rice, a curry dish, a thoran and a non-vegetarian dish. Thoran/Upperi is a simple stir fried dish made of finely chopped vegetables mixed together with grated coconut, mustard seeds, curry leaves and turmeric powder. Today I am sharing the recipe of a cabbage thoran. Why did I choose such a simple recipe?? While we were having lunch, J was mentioning how much he loves this preparation and suggested that I put it in my blog. So here I am. πŸ™‚
