Cabbage Dal Curry

This is a dry curry and a little spicy one. The combination of a dal and vegetable makes it very unique and tasty too. The dal which I have used here is tuvar dal. You can choose to use moong dal as well. This is a good way to include a protein in our vegetarian diet. Since it is not very bland even kids love to eat this curry. I make this curry often as we all like to eat cabbage in a slightly spicy form rather than the bland one. Here I have used the combination of cooking techniques of using microwave and stove top. You can cook it, just on stove top too. This curry is adapted from the book 100 lunch recipes by Mallika Badrinath and this is my entry for Cookbook challenge by Srivalli.

The other cabbage recipe which is colourful and easier to cook is the Violet cabbage curry

I am huge fan of cabbage and this curry with rasam rice is so yum!!! Made a similar curry with Channa dal yesterday. Amma makes with Moong though. Never made this curry in a mw!

Hi Veena, this looks so appetizing and I love cabbage! I’ve had it plain with some crunchy dal as a garnish – never with cooked dal. Definitely a must-try 🙂
