Thuvayal or chutney is very popular side dish in tamil nadu. It is made with lentils, bottlegourd, ridge gourd or cabbage. I started buying this red cabbage only after coming to singapore and usually used it in my salads. I once made a simple stir fry, but somehow I did not like the taste. It was quite different from the usual stir fry we do with the green cabbage. I buy it very rarely.
When I bought it this time, I was wondering what to do with it. I suddenly remembered a hot chutney with green cabbage , my friend made for me once. And then I got the idea of making thuvayal /chutney with it. I knew it was going to be good. It tasted really nice and I think I am going to do this whenever I buy this one.
