Print Friendly and PDF

Mixed vegetable poriyal PLATE

This is a very simple poriyal recipe made with a combination of vegetables..It tastes great with sambar sadam Smile..We call this as cabbage podimas..I make this podimas mostly during occasions as this recipe don’t have onions.The addition of moong dal & grated coconut gives the taste..Sometimes i make the same adding onions.It tastes good in either way..


INGREDIENTS
1 cup - 200ml
  • Cabbage – 1 cup (finely chopped)
  • Carrot , beans, peas -  1 cup (chopped)
  • Big onion – 1 no (finely chopped) (optional)
  • Ginger – 1 inch piece (finely chopped)
  • Moong dal – 3 tbsp
  • Grated coconut – 1/2 cup
  • Green chillies – 2- 3 nos (finely chopped)
  • Curry leaves & coriander leaves – few
  • Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
  • Cooking oil – 2 tbsp
  • Salt & water – As needed
METHOD
  • In a wide bowl ,cook the finely chopped carrot , beans , peas & cabbage till its half cooked..Pressure cook moong dal separately till it blossoms.
  • Heat oil in a kadai and temper with mustard seeds , curry leaves , finely chopped green chillies , ginger & onions..Saute till onions turn transparent..
  • Then add all the half-cooked vegetables , salt and mix well.
  • Close it with a lid and cover cook for 10 mins in low flame. Mix well in between..
  • Once all the veggies are completely cooked , add the grated coconut & coriander leaves..Mix well & switch off the flame..

MIXED VEGETABLE PORIYAL

NOTE
  1. Please cook all the vegetables till its half done. Do not over cook them..
  2. I added slit green chilly for my daughter .The original recipe used finely chopped green chillies..
  3. Add the mentioned amount of grated coconut to get the actual taste.
  4. Coriander leaves is also a must..Adding ginger removes the raw smell of cabbage. But its purely optional..
