Every South-Indian meal comprises the main course as rice with any kulambu with a side of poriyal, kootu, varuval and thoran. Of all, I love the thorans. Thoran can be made with vegetables like cabbage, carrot, beans, broad beans, and most green vegetables. The Cabbage thoran that I made the other day is our family’s favorite. It has the right proportion of subtle spices with the aroma from coconut. The entire thoran is cooked in a tablespoon of coconut oil, making it the most simple, crunchy and flavorful lunchsides. This cabbage thoran goes well with sambar, rasam or just curd rice. Try this simple cabbage thoran and enjoy with your meal.
- Thoran can be made with any vegetables and even greens. The cook time may however vary for each vegetable.
- Always use coconut oil to temper thoran. They give a great taste and flavor to any thoran.
