Cabbage and Egg Stir-fry - A Simple Combo

Cabbage used to be one of my least favorite vegetables in my childhood. To me it was a stinky vegetable with no taste. As I grew, my taste buds changed and I started loving cabbage - even a plain steamed cabbage with salt is sufficient for me to enjoy this vegetable nowadays. As I started trying new dishes, I learned quite a few interesting variations with cabbage.

Here is a yummy variation - Cabbage stir fried with eggs.  Mom makes this often and it tastes yummy when she makes it as usual. This is the only recipe with cabbage my daughter loves too. Otherwise, she wrinkles
 her nose at the mere mention if this vegetable and she comes up with a myriad of excuses to not eat it. When combined with egg, it gives a different flavor and makes it quite different.

Madurai Style Chicken Curry

Hope everyone is enjoying the summer. I just wish we had more rain.

Feels good to post a recipe after a long time! During my break, I received several requests to post chicken recipes. Here I am, back with a chicken curry recipe that goes well with Idli, Dosa and Appam. This is made with a fresh aromatic spice powder that is prepared instantly. This chicken curry is quite popular in in the southern region of our state. While growing up in Madurai I enjoyed this often, especially in restaurants. I finally got the recipe for this curry from a friend.
