Carrot Cabbage Poriyal | Carrot Cabbage Stir Fry

Sometimes it takes very simple ingredients to blend into a tasteful recipe. This is one of those recipes which takes less time to cook & turns out yumm. I love trying cabbage with green beans,peas & carrots or even mixing all together. 
This month I was paired with Santosh Bangar of Santosh's Kitchen. She has lots of flavorful dishes & it was very hard for me to choose a single dish from them. I chose "Cabbage peas easy stire" & I did made some changes to it according to my taste.

2 Cups chopped cabbage 
1 Cup chopped carrot
2 Green chilli's sliced in to half
2 Tbs curry powder
1 Tsp mustard seeds
1 Tsp jeera seeds
1 Tsp channa dal
1 Tsp urad dal 
2 Tbs oil
Curry leaves for flavor

Curry Powder
2 Tbs channa Dal 
2 Tbs urad Dal 
1 Tbs peanuts 
4 Red chilli's
Dry roast the above ingredients & allow them to cool.Grind them to a smooth powder.

Heat a pan with oil, channa & urad dal. Fry them till they turn light brown & add mustard, jeera to pan. Once the mustard starts jumping mix green chilli's & curry leaves to pan. Then mix cabbage,carrot & salt to pan.Close it with a lid & allow it to cook. Check carrots if they are cooked & then stir in curry powder.Cook for 5mins & switch off heat. 
Curry is ready to serve with rice or roti. 

You can adjust the spiciness by removing green chili's.

I got a good critique from everyone who tasted it. So give it a try.. :)
