Thorans are easy to throw together, because everything calls for the same spices which are ground with coconut and stir fried. You can make thoran with beetroots, carrots, cucumber and many more. I love this because they are so easy to make in the morning, this one takes less than 15 mins to make. And the taste is so fresh and clean.
I love making thorans with cabbage because I feel they are so good for me and for me this is the only way to sneak this vegetable in our diet. So there you go to the recipe.
