Red Cabbage Stir Fry | Cabbage Poriyal | Muttaikose Poriyal

Red Cabbage Stir Fry or Muttaikose Poriyal is a simple and easy to make Recipe, normally I use green cabbage for our Tamil-Nadu style Cabbage Poriyal but this is the first time I tried red cabbage and it really tastes good. Difference between Red cabbage and Green cabbage is almost same but the health benefits in Red cabbage is slightly better than Green cabbage.

Health Benefits of Red Cabbage
Red Cabbage is rich in Vitamins, Minerals and acts as a antioxidants. It supports to improve the immune system of our body. according to me all the Cabbage varieties are healthy because they're rich in fiber and very low in calorie and high in nutrition.
