Heat the oil, add the mustard seeds and urad dal and let the seeds crackle. Add the green chilli, dry red chillies, curry leaves and turmeric powder and stir for few seconds.

Add the cabbage, salt, sprinkle water and cook over a medium flame till the cabbage is tender. Add the grated coconut, mix well and serve hot.

This vegetable is very tasty,  we enjoyed it, the aroma of curry leaves and crunchiness of the urad dal  gives a unique taste to this poriyal.
