Cabbage and peas curry/Cabbage and green peas Poriyal

Cabbage poriyal or curry is a simple vegetable accompaniment for any south Indian gravy like sambar,rasam or vathakozhambu.It is a common poriyal made in all households.It goes well with sambar sadham too.In lot of places when you order sambar sadam(variety rice)cabbage curry would be the accompaniment.
My mother used to make this curry with Sambar and i would always  complain why she didn't make a potato fry with sambar????But now when i am a mom  i want my kids to try out all the vegetables and i am sure she would have also felt the same!!!!

Butter Beans Sundal/Navrathri Recipes

                                                    Butter Beans is a new sundal i tried today.I had not soaked any(bean or kadalai)for sundal for today so ran to the stores and was looking for a bean variety.First time i even saw these actually.I was wondering whether they were Lima beans or Soya beans but apparently they are "Butter Beans"..I just soaked them for 2-3 hours( i was not sure if it was enough and had a back up plan of instant yellow dal Sundal­čśť).After soaking for few hours pressure cooked them with salt for three whistles and then just seasoned it.It is quiet simple and it was so soft as butter!!!!
