Cherupayar Cabbage Thoran

Cherupayar Cabbage Thoran is a very tasty combination thoran. It is a great side dish for rice. Loaded with health benefits, cherupayar does wonders to your diet. I try all possible dishes with Cherupayar (Mung Beans/ Moong Dal) because of its health benefits and also because it is our Kudumba curry (a family favorite known as “cheroos”). Sprouted mung thoran, Cherupayar ularthiyathu, cherupayar Vazhakoombu thoran, we have countless dishes with cheroos. This is my mummy’s style thoran, as I told you, she is always into combination thoran, she calls it “mixed doubles”. Together, cabbage and cherupayar has delightful taste and is a must try dish with your rice. See below for the amazing health benefits of Mung Beans. Dedicating this recipe to my whole family who are all ardent cherupayar fans.

Cabbage: ½ portion (small)
