Cabbage Kadala Parippu Curry/ Cabbage Dal Curry

Today's recipe is a healthy and simple dish that goes well with rice and chapati.It is a cabbage and lentil combo.Here I have used chana dal/kadala parippu.

Ingredients
Cabbage- 1/2 small sized cabbage
Kadala Parippu/chana dal- 3/4 cup
Green chilly-3-4
Ginger- thinly sliced- 1 inch thick
Onion- thinly sliced-1/2
Tomato-1 medium
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp

Chilly Powder- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- a pinch
Cumin seeds- 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - a few
Crushed garlic- 2 pods
Hing/Asafoetida- a pinch


Soak chana dal/kadala parippu for about one hour and then pressure cook till three whistles. When the pressure is released mash it and make it soft. Into this add sliced and chopped cabbage,turmeric powder,green chilly,tomato,onion and salt  and cook till the cabbage and onions are is soft.(or you can pressure cook it for one more whistle)
Heat two tsp of oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and cumin seeds. When it splutters add dry red chilly, curry leaves, hing and turmeric and crushed garlic and saute till there is a nice aroma and raw flavor of garlic disappears. Remove the pan from the flame and add chilly powder and stir quickly and add in the cooked cabbage and dal. Bring back to heat and after a few seconds switch off. Serve with rice or chapatis.
