Cabbage & Sprouts stir fry or poriyal can be served as a side dish for kuzhambu varieties or as salad. The regular stir fry is given a healthy twist to include protein rich ingredients in our regular menu. In this recipe, I have used mixed sprouts which can also be substituted with any one variety of sprouts. To make it more nutritious, include more veggies like broccoli, carrot, red cabbage etc.
1 Tsp Olive Oil
1/4 Tsp Mustard seeds
1/2 Tsp Cumin / Jeera seeds
1 Onion, Finely chopped
2 Green chillies, slitted
1 Cup Cabbage, grated
1/2 Cup Mixed Sprouts ( Horse gram, Cow pea, Black chickpeas, Green gram )
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves for garnishing
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds.
Once it starts spluttering, add jeera seeds followed by chopped onion and green chillies.

Saute and add the mixed sprouts along with the required amount of salt.
Simmer the flame, sprinkle 1 tbsp of water and cook till the cabbage gets cooked.
