Cabbage Coconut CurryCabbage coconut curry is one of the South Indian recipes (Andhra Style). It is made from black gram and cabbage by adding the additional flavor of coconut. It is easy to cook recipe. I tried to make this recipe in Andhra style.

If you are planning to have with plain rice, then its a better option to make this recipe moist. As this recipe tastes great with chapati, I like to keep this dry. When you are serving this recipe to children, it becomes easy to make rolls and make your children eat easily.

When I am left with this recipe, I usually bring brown bread from the bakery and stuff Cabbage Coconut Curry into the slices and roast it in a toaster. In short, this recipe not only fulfills meals but also breakfast at jiffy.

Tip: You can follow same steps above and prepare carrot coconut curry by replacing cabbage with a carrot.
