  Thoran is a popular dry dish from the cuisine of  Kerala, India. Cabbage Thoran  is basically Cabbage stir fry which uses coconut, green chilly, onion and cumin seeds in them. Thoran in general, is an everyday dry curry for rice using any vegetable available. I love the simplicity and the combination of spices used in this preperation. This is kind of soul food for me. Whoever didn't try this yet, it's highly recommended from my side.
