Pressure cooker Cabbage Curry(கூட்டு )

I often buy purple cabbage because it tastes awesome and you can make a colorful plate with purple cabbage.You get it in mexican stores .I usually do a mexican dish with it, this time i wanted to make something traditional using purple cabbage. I decided on making kootu.This goes very well with kuzhambu and rasam rice. You can eat it with chappathis too.
