1. In a pressure cooker heat the oil. Add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, urad dal and curry leaves.

2. When the mustard seeds splutter, add the chopped onions and chopped green chillies.
3. Saute until the onions are translucent. 

4. Add the chopped cabbage and the peas. Add little water (about a 1/4 cup) and salt and mix well.
5. Close the cooker and pressure cook for 1-2 whistles. 

6. Once done, open the cooker, if there is remnant water, saute for a few minutes until all the water is gone.

And that's it, ready to serve cabbage peas stir fry.

Cabbage Peas Poriyal

1. You can very well make this in an open pan but I find that the peas cook better in a pressure cooker.
2. Just make sure you don't add too much water while pressure cooking as that will make the cabbage soggy.
3. You can open the cooker and add some grated coconut too.
4. If using fresh peas, use the pressure cooker. If using frozen peas, you can make this in open pan.

Until next time,
