Cabbage Carrot Poriyal

This poriyal is one of the recipes which I learnt from my mother-in-law. This goes well with the roti rather than with rice. Since we dont eat spicy foods, I usually use 2 red chillies. More chillies can be added as per the spicy level.

Cabbage , cut into long strips 2 cups
Carrot, cut into thin strips 1 cup
Tomato, cut into thin strips 1/2 no. medium
Cinnamon stick 1/2 inch
Cloves 2 nos.
Red Chillies 2 nos.
Whole Black Pepper 4 nos.
Fennel seeds 1 tsp
Turmeric 1/4 tsp

1. Heat a kadai with some oil and add the cinnamon, cloves, fennel seeds and redchillies.

2. Add the carrots and fry for 2 mins.

3. Add the cabbage and fry for a minute. Close the kadai half-way with a lid and cook in medium heat for 3 mins (stir in between).

4. Add in the turmeric, salt and the tomatoes. Continue to cook for 5-7 mins till the vegetables are cooked enough.

Serve hot with roti.
