Cabbage Stir-Fry / Muttaikhos Poriyal

Cabbage Stir-Fry / Muttaikhos Poriyal - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Already I have shared few cabbage recipes, but this time I am going to share a purple cabbage recipe. I love this purple cabbage, which has little different taste than the usual cabbage, also it’s little crunchy than the usual ones. Got it during my trip to ooty last month.
