This thoran or side dish is made from cabbages and is easy to prepare. This version uses coconut, but it is optional. Coconut not optional if you are a Malayalee :P Bon Appetit!
Grate the cabbage and the coconut. Cut the onion and the chillies. Keep aside
Heat the oil. When adequately hot, put in the mustard
Add the cut onion and chillies. Stir and heat well till the onion becomes golden brown
Add the grated cabbage and turmeric powder. Stir well for 4 - 5 minutes
Add water and salt. Stir well enough for it to mix well. Keep the vessel closed for 4 - 5 minutes
Remove the lid and add the coconut. Stir well until ready (4 -5 minutes typically). You will have to fry it more if water remains after the lid is removed.
