Red cabbage Beetroot curry


I had this curry in a restaurant and was so suprised by the combination of vegetables. I have never cooked red cabbage and this curry gave me a chance to try that. This is such a healthy dish which can be had with plain rice or rotis. As for me, I liked it more with curd rice.

I do not know if this is the right name for this curry as it had another ingredient ...red chori. I thought if I include that also, then the name would become too big. Anyway, If anyone else out there does this curry and knows the name ,please let me know too. I'll be really thankful for that.

Ingredients:
Beetroot- 1 (medium, cut into strips)
red cabbage- 1 cup(shredded)
Red chori- 3 tbsp (cooked)
onion- 1/2(small,chopped)
green chillies- 2(chopped)
coconut-2 tbsp(shredded)
curry leaves
Procedure:
Heat oil in kadai and fry mustard seeds,urad dal and channa dal. Then add onions and cook till transparent. Now add beetroot, green chillies and some salt. Add very little water. Cover and cook until beet is almost done. Then add red cabbage and stir fry until done. Finally add cooked red chori,coconut, required salt and curry leaves. Blend everything together.

Kribha said...

Hi Sukanya,
The first time when I saw this at the restaurant I did not even try it. My hubby tasted it and liked it very much. He asked me to do the same sometime at home. That's why I got a taste of it and I'm so glad that I did not miss this out.I'm sure you will like it too.

Kribha,
I loved the way you built up a beautiful red colored dish with a very unique combo. Never tried red cabbage. Does it taste similar to the normal white cabbage?

Kribha said...

Dear Seema,
Actually it was not me who made up this combo. I had it in a restaurant and I tried to do the same. I'm not able to specifically tell about the taste of red cabbage as this is the first time I tried it and moreover, beet and chori did alter the taste. Will notice it next time and let you know.

Prema Sundar said...

This looks like a good combo Kribha. I have seen red cabbage and wanted to cook something with it..but didnt know a good recipe. i thought of buying it and making the usual cabbage poriyal but not sure how it would turn out. Urs look good with beets and chori. would surely give a try. thanks for sharing.

Kribha said...

Yes Prema,it is indeed a good combo. At first I did not want to eat it as I had so many non-veg items in the buffet.But once I tried it ,I really liked it. Hope you would give a try too.
