Cabbage Dhal


Hi all,

I took this recipe from Priti's blog. Made this dhal for dinner and served this along with rice. My friend tried eating this dhal with chappathi and gave me a big WOW.. My hubby is not a great fan of cabbage and he never guessed that I prepred a dhal out of cabbage. And this recipe made his eat the full plate.. Thanks Priti for this wonderful recipe and the whole credit goes to you!!

I did make a minor change in the recipe and did come out well.

cabbage (roughly chopped) - 2 cups
channa dal - 1 cup
tomatoes - 2 (roughly chopped)
green chillies - 3 ( chopped)
salt to taste
turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
sambar powder - 1 + 1/2 tsp
hing - 1/4 tsp
garlic - 10 - 12

To season:
oil - 2 tbsp
mustard seeds - 1 tsp
cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
onions - 1 (finely chopped)
corriander leaves (chopped) - 1 handful
curry leaves - 10 - 12

- add everthing other than the "to season" ingredients to a pressure cooker and cook for 7 - 8 whistles
- in a pan add oil
- when the oil is hot add the mustard and cumin seeds
- when they splutter add the onions and fry until they are golden brown
- add the curry leaves and fry for 2 mins
- add the fried ingredients to the dal
- add the corriander leaves and then bring it to a boil
- serve them hot
