Cabbage Poriyal/Cabbage Poriyal with Thengai/Cabbage Stir Fry with Coconut/How to make Simple and easy Cabbage Poriyal

Today I am going a share a very traditional, authentic and common Cabbage Poriyal which is a very popular side dish in South Indian Meals. Cabbage belongs to a group of cole crops, which means that it is closely related to broccoli, cauliflower and Brussel sprouts. Cabbage is a very good source of dietary fiber, calcium, magnesium, potassium and a great source of Vitamin K. It is also loaded with antioxidants and other vitamins like vitamin C, B6, Thiamine, Niacin, Folate etc. Cabbage is high in fiber and contains zero fat, so it aids in weight loss and lowers cholesterol to a great extent. Consuming Cabbage helps in boosting the immune system due to the presence of Vitamin C. The other most important Vitamin that is not available in many other vegetables is Vitamin K. This Vitamin K boost the mental function and concentration, it plays vital role in blood clotting, bone metabolism and increases blood calcium levels. Having shared few of the important benefits of Cabbage, now let’s move on to this simple Cabbage Poriyal. Do try out this healthy bowl of Cabbage Poriyal and post your comments here.
