Muttacose Muttai Poriyal (Cabbage Egg Fry)

This is one eezipeezi dish which can be made fast as cabbage takes very little time to process and also to cook. we can have it as a side dish for rice & curry or as a dish with chappaties. For a healthier version, use less oil and only eggwhites. All the fat in the egg is in the yolk. Whites contain most of the proteins.

Cabbage - chopped - 3 cups (around half a head of a small cabbage)
Onion - 1 big chopped
Jeera - 1 tsp
Sonf - 1/2 tsp
Curry Leaves - 1-2 sprigs
Eggs - 2 - 3
salt to taste
chilli powder 1/2 - 1 tsp as per heat tolerance
Green Chilli - chopped fine - Optional
Turmeric Powder 1/2 tsp.
Oil - 1 tbsp

Heat oil in a pan, add jeera and sonf. let them splutter. add curry leaves, onions and green chilli. add salt and sautee till onion is translucent. Add turmeric pdr, stir. Add chopped cabbage and stir well. add water around 1/2 cup or so and let it cook till cabbage is tender. By the the water should dry up. Otherwise increase the flame and allow the water to dry up. Add chilli powder and stir to mix well. Next add eggs. Mix well on medium flame till eggs are cooked. Serve Hot.

The same can be made without eggs also.

Hint: When adding eggs to any dish first break into a seperate cup and then add. Then you can avoid adding a bad egg and spoiling the entire dish.
