Mixed Vegetable Poriyal | Marriage Cabbage Poriyal | Cabbage Poriyal

Mixed Vegetable Poriyal, a delicious accompaniment for rice prepared made cabbage, carrot,beans & peas, flavored with indian spices and coconut. It's one of the signature dish from the marriage feast in south tamilnadu. It's really hard to see any marriage feast without this poriyal in my hometown(Tirunelveli). This poriyal is known by various name like "Kalayan veetu Poriyal","Mixture poriyal","Cabbage carrot beans poriyal" and in recent times people also mentioned it as "Tri color Poriyal". 

In our home, amma makes this poriyal often as accompaniment for our lunch, especially when she makes sambar on Fridays. This poriyal goes well with cooked rice and sambar. And also we used to make this poriyal for guests visiting our home or any small function at our home. Since we are using more than one vegetable in this poriyal, it yields large quantity and make it perfect for crowd. Next to aviyal, this poriyal is also the must for small family function at our home. 
For this poriyal, Amma always add couple of tsp of  soaked(around 30 mins) moong dal along with other veggies to cook. In today's recipe, i haven't added the moong dal since i forgot to soak the dal. Without dal also it tastes awesome, but for variations you can add the moong dal also. Now let's check out on how to make this kalyana veetu cabbage poriyal.
