Microwave Cabbage & Drumstick Leaves Stirfry

I often make simple stir fries with any sort of veggies either with dals or simply with a combination of many veggies..Since we are leaving tomorrow for vacations, am very busy in cleaning and finishing veggies before leaving for our long waited trip..There were some leftover chinese cabbage which i used for making rotis and curries and i wanted to finish it as something different along with drumstick leaves..This simple stir fry tastes too delicious also easy and quick to get ready eventhough i prepared them in microwave oven..Healthy side dish to enjoy along with rice or with parathas..I enjoyed having this healthy stir fry along with rasam rice, both together tastes fabulous and i truly enjoyed having this fabulous side dish..


Cabbage & Drumstick Leaves Stirfry

2cups Cabbage (chopped)
1/2cup Drumstick leaves
1no Onion (chopped)
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1tsp Mustard seeds, urad dal & channadal
2tbsp Grated coconut
Oil
Salt

Heat enough oil in a microwave safe bowl for 2 minutes in high, add the mustard seeds, urad dal and channadal, heat again for 5minutes in high until the spices turned brown, add the chopped onions and slit opened green chillies, salt to the tempered spices and cook for 5minutes (stir twice) in high in microwave oven, now add the cabbage and drumstick leaves,give a stir and cook for 15minutes (stir thrice in between) until the veggies get cooked.. Finally add the grated coconut, give a stir and serve hot as side dish...

Interesting combo...the only other place I've seen such a combo is in one of Mallika Badrinath's books.....but hers has some more ingredients.
