This cabbage egg poriyal / stir fry is an dry preparation flavored with spices makes a delightful accompaniment to any South Indian main course.

You can also use this as a stuffing for chapathi rolls and sandwich too.


Egg – 3 to 4
Cabbage - 3 cups(shredded) 
Onions - 1 medium, finely chopped

Break eggs in a bowl and beat it thoroughly; keep aside.

Heat oil in a wide kadai; season it with cumin seeds and fennel seeds.

After it crackles add the onions and saute until the colour changes to golden brown.

Add cabbage, spice powders and salt; mix well.

Close the pan with a lid; cook till the cabbage becomes soft and water dries up.

(no need to add water as cabbage leaves enough water to cook). If you find it dry add very little water.

Add the eggs along with chopped coriander leaves into the center of the pan, slowly mix in the cabbage mixture till it blended well.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot.
