Red cabbage poriyal is a popular South Indian style purple cabbage stir fry. It is a healthy and tasty side dish with dal rice, phulka, and roti. I often make this red cabbage curry at home. It is quite easy and similar to a green cabbage curry. It also takes very little time to prepare.

In most South Indian poriyal recipes, grated coconut is usually added to enhance nutrition and taste. But it is optional; make sure you don't overcook the veggies as it gets mushy and soggy.

Red Cabbage is also known as purple Cabbage because of its color. I usually add lemon juice to preserve the purple hue as it turns bluish in color after cooking. 
Red Cabbage is a versatile vegetable; it can be used in many recipes like salad, veggie stir-fries, fried rice, pulav, etc.
