Cabbage Scrambled Eggs Stir Fry- Kerala Style Egg Cabbage Thoran

One of my favorite ways to make cabbage, is stir-fried with scrambled eggs…

I only make a few dishes with cabbage: Kerala-style thoran or stir fry with coconut, add grated cabbage to noodles and this cabbage with scrambled eggs, I like to flavor up the bland cabbage by adding eggs to it. This is one dish that I make whenever I have cabbage in my refrigerator. This can be served as a side dish with rice or can be wrapped in chapati, tortilla, or roti.
