This cabbage Egg poriyal is very easy to cook and one of the tasty dish.

Nutritional Benefits of Cabbage
-------------------------------
Rich in nutrition and fiber, cabbage is an absolutely phenomenal source of Vitamin C. Even more impressive is that cabbage is famous for a specialized, naturally occurring, nitrogenous compound known as indoles. Current research indicates that indoles can lower the risk of various forms of cancer.

Talk about the original weight loss food! One cup of cabbage contains only around 15 calories.

Cabbage is rich in the following nutrients:

Vitamin A: responsible for the protection of your skin and eyes.

Vitamin C: an all important anti-oxidant and helps the mitochondria to burn fat.

Vitamin E: a fat soluble anti-oxidant which plays a role in skin integrity.

Vitamin B: helps maintain integrity of nerve endings and boosts energy metabolism.

Cabbage provides high levels of iron and sulphur, minerals that work in part as cleansing agents for the digestive system.

Ooo...after reading these benefits, I really started to love cabbage...Here is one way of cooking this veggie.

About Me

Hi, I'm Anuradha. As a mother, I always wanted to provide healthy food to my family. Though many sources are available for good food, only very few satisfy our palate. That may be because of the way we were brought up or the way we like. I'm trying to document the recipes which we (family) really liked. This could be helpful not only for me but also for others as a quick reference. If we are very good at the traditional recipes (basic), we can create different food as per our taste. So, I'm getting started with the traditional recipes. Hopefully, I could soon able to create different types of food on my own. Your comments & feedbacks are much appreciated.
