    Hi,

    Thanks for the recipes - I like Zucchini and am going to try the poruthuval. But I have a doubt - is it ok to pressure cook the toor dhal and use it? Wont it become too soggy in the final curry?

    Cheers,

    Sumathy

    Spicy Cabbage

    Spicy Cabbage

    [​IMG]
    Ingredients:
    • 1 Small Onion, sliced
    • 50 gms Low Fat Magarine
    • 2 Medium Carrots, grated
    • ½ tsp White Cumin seeds
    • 225 gms Cabbage, shreded
    • 7-8 Dried Red Chillies, to taste
    • 2 tbsps Lemon Juice
    • ½ tsp Salt
    Method:
    • Melt the low-fat margarine in a medium saucepan and fry the white cumin seeds and dried red chillies for about 30 seconds.
    • Add the sliced onion and fry for about 2 minutes. Add the cabbage and carrots and stir-fry for a further 5 minutes or until the cabbage is soft.
    • Finally, stir in the salt and lemon juice and serve.

    Tip: When a recipe calls for adding oil, garlic, and onions to a pan, always add garlic last. This keeps it from burning and tasting bitter.
