Had lots of coconut at home and very badly wanted to use it up. So, thought of making use of it in this stir fry / poriyal that has a combination of Cabbage and Peas. Cabbage Peas Curry/Poriyal mainly uses coconut and green chillies as the base and is extremely simple to prepare.
Cabbage and Peas make a wonderful combination and needless to say, with the addition of coconut, this tasted great. Cabbage is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin C, and vitamin B6. It is also a very good source of manganese, dietary fiber, potassium, vitamin B1, folate and copper.Green peas are one of the most nutritious leguminous vegetables rich in health benefiting phyto-nutrients, minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidants. So, this one is absolutely nutritious and healthy.
