Sadya Special Thoran ! (Mixed vegetable & coconut)

The scrumptious meal in Kerala,popularly known as Sadya is a complete melange of vegetable delights.Here is a thoran (vegetables sautéed and cooked along with coconut) we prepare especially for festive occasions.In fact,we make use of all those excess vegetables in this.For anyone looking for a quick-fix with available veggies,this is an excellent option.Do try.


2 cups finely chopped veggies (cabbage,carrot,onion,potato etc)
1/2 cup cooked gram dal (any lentil of your choice.I had some excess gram dal which I made use of)
1/4 to 1/2 cup grated coconut
pinch of turmeric powder
1/2 tsp chilly powder
1/4 tsp pepper powder
1 green chilly,chopped
1 tsp ginger,chopped
1 tsp uzhunnuparippu/black gram dal
2 dry red chilles
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
2 sprig curry leaves
oil,salt as required


Heat oil in a heavy bottomed kadai and splutter mustard seeds,dry chillies and curry leaves followed by black gram dal.Add green chilly and ginger to this and saute till the raw smell disappears.Heat should be minimum.Add the vegetables and cooked dal to this.Mix well.Add turmeric,chilly and pepper powders to this.Mix and cook these in minimum heat. Sauté in between and check the salt.After the vegetables been cooked,add the grated coconut and mix well.Serve as a side dish for rice.

    I have seen this being served for Sadhyas. I have never really tried it myself. Will try it soon.

    Do you have the recipe for the Kootu curry too? The brown one with all the lentils and Jaggery. I am not really sure how its made.

    This is my all-time favorite! Onam or not, I make this pretty often, with diff combinations of vegetables. The Channa Dal addition is the best! 🙂
