Cabbage Mor Kootu

Curry leaf is hosting Tried & Tasted: Tasty Palettes. T& T is brain child of Zlamushka of Spicy Kitchen. Suganya's Tasty Palettes is a vegetarian heaven..I was going through some of the the recipes, the one which caught attention was cabbage Mor kootu. I have done cabbage kootu but adding yogurt was totally different. I give it a try..It came out very well. It goes well with chappathi and rice...

Check out the original recipe here!!!!


Cabbage – 1, small
Yogurt – ¾ cup
Grated coconut – 1/3 cup
Green chillies – 2
Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
Curry leaves – few
Oil – 1 tsp
Salt to taste


I followed the recipe step by step...without any variation... Here is the step by step procedure by suganya...

Slice cabbage into thin, 2 inch long pieces. Cook cabbage with little water and salt. Grind coconut, chillies and cumin seeds to a fine paste. When cabbage becomes soft and not mushy, add the ground mixture. Adjust salt and heat through.
In a seasoning pan heat oil, splutter mustard seeds and throw some curry leaves. Add this to cabbage kootu. Just before serving, mix cabbage with yogurt



YUM! YUM! Got to pick up a Cabbage tomorrow! :)
