Purple Cabbage Ginger Chutney/Muttaikose Inji Thuvaiyal/Cabbage Thogayal

South Indians makes excellent side dish for their breakfast dishes especially for Idlis or dosas. Sometimes we need to think seriously out of the box to please everyone at home. My hubby love to have his idlis or dosas with different sort of chutneys than finishing his meal just with a side dish. Obviously if i plan idlis or dosas, i have to plan atleast more than a chutney to please his tastebuds. Hence i couldnt stop myself to dish out this purple cabbage thuvaiyal aka chutney to serve with dosas. Purple cabbage/Red cabbage you can name them as whatever, but this cabbage is bit expensive than the green cabbage but trust me they stay fresh for a long than the green one. If you are bored of dishing out usual dishes with cabbage, dont hesitate a second to check my today's post.
