Cabbage Channa Dal Stir-Fry


Cabbage – 1/2 medium chopped

Channa dal – 1/4 cup

Water – 1 cup

Onion – 1 medium sliced

Green chillies – 4 slit

Curry leaves – 1 sprig

Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp

Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp

Cumin seeds – 1/4 tsp

Salt – to taste

Oil – 1 tbsp


Wash and soak the dal in water for 30 minutes.  Drain and put it into a pressure cooker.  Pour 1 cup of water into it and pressure cook for 8 minutes on low flame after the first whistle.  Heat oil in a non-stick pan and splutter mustard seeds and cumin seeds.  Add onions, green chillies and curry leaves.  Fry till the onions turn pink.  Add turmeric powder and stir.  Add the cooked dal and allow the excess water to evaporate.  When it is almost dry, add the cabbage and salt.  Mix well and cook covered on a low flame till done.  Stir occasionally.  ‘Cabbage Channa Dal Stir-Fry’ is a very good side dish for rice and chappathi.
