White Cabbage Thoran for 4

  1. Heat 5 tblsp of sunflower oil in a large frying pan fry 11/2 tblsp of mustard seed until they pop
  2. Add 10 curry leaves and cook stirring for 1-2 minutes
  3. Add 3 finely sliced onions (allotment grown) and 2 dried chillies finely sliced
  4. Cook on a high heat for 1 minute then cook gently until the onions are soft about 15minutes stirring every now and then
  5. Add salt and 1tsp of turmeric then stir in a small shredded white cabbage (allotment grown) and I used a mandolin to finely slice it. Cook covered for 15mins or until tender
  6. Stir in 100gs of grated coconut (I used a Patak sachet and added a small amount of water to make it into a creamy sauce)

Best meal in a long time and on the menu once a month from now on. It also works with carrots but since my carrots were a disaster I can't claim it as a recipe for using allotment produce.
