For Day 2 under Regional Dishes I have a Cabbage Poriyal. Poriyals are served as a side dish for South Indian meals. They can be simply tempered with mustard and lentils or one could add grated coconut to them.This particular poriyal is a very simple one where I have tempered it with mustard, urad dal, curry leaves and whole red chilly. I had served this with the complete Tamil Spread that I cooked for Buffet on the Table.
The Poriyal might me a very simple one , but definitely very comforting specially when serving a spread.
Cabbage Poriyal

2 tsp oil
1 /2 tsp mustard seeds
