Purple Cabbage Poriyal is one of the easiest and quickest poriyal to make for your family. I would say it taste so much better than our regular cabbage. I don’t make it mushy by stirring for long. I hardly stir for 5 mins and it’s done. There won’t  be any raw smell and they are so flavourful. I love the crunchy and soft taste. I don’t want to kill the nutrients present in this purple cabbage . This purple cabbage is mostly used in salad  and they taste awesome. I have many recipes coming up in future post for now I am posting Indian style purple cabbage poriyal here. This goes so well with lots of our main Kulambu varieties.

My 8 year old daughter loves this purple cabbage poriyal a lot. First it’s very colorful and that’s an instant attraction, second she likes that mild crunchy texture when she eats it. I add less spice when I give it to her. I usually add the grounded coconut part last so I can give my 8 year old her own mild flavoured purple cabbage. She doesn’t like it with too much spice. So yeah for sure kids will love it too. Kids love anything that’s differnt from usual or if it involves variety of colors.  Me and hubby like it with typical Indian blend mix . I love pairing this with Podi Kuzhambu,  Moor Kuzhambu( Buttermilk)Sambar , Rasam( Udipi Rasam) , Andhra Tomato Pappu,

You can make all kinds of recipes using this purple cabbage just like how you make with the regular green cabbage. I have once tried it as chutney too hahahh it did taste so good but the color was def scary so let me save that recipe for  halloween list hahahh.  Also Other varieties of Cabbage recipes are Cabbage fry, Cabbage rice( for lunch Box), Tri color Fry, Cabbage PakodaOff to making of Purple cabbage Poriyal recipe.
