Cabbage with toor daal

This is a nice recipe with the combination of daal and vegetable. This can be served as a side dish or as a main dish.


Shredded Cabbage – 2 cups
Toor dal – ½ cup
Grated Coconut (Fresh)– ¼ cup
Green chilli - 4 – 5
For Seasoning;
Red chilli (Dry) – 1 or 2
Curry leaves – 1 string
Mustard – ½ tsp
Cumin / Jeera – ½ tsp
Oil – 2 tbsp
Boiled toor daal, cabbage, fresh coconut

Wash and soak the toor daal in 1 cup of water for 30 minutes and pressure cook until 1 whistle or cook normally until it is just done and should not be too mushy and be able to press in between the fingers.

Boiled toor daal

Heat a pan with 2 tbsp of oil. When it is hot enough, add the entire seasoning items Red chilli, mustard, cumin, curry leaves one after the other.

Slit the green chillies into 2 to 4 pieces and add to the seasoning and fry for a minute.

Now add the shredded cabbage, salt and turmeric powder and stir momentarily. Cover the lid and allow cabbage to cook with the steam itself. No need to add water.
When the cabbage is almost done, add the boiled toor daal and grated coconut and mix every thing and cook for few minutes and remove from the fire.

This goes well with rice or roti or even with pita bread.
