Cabbage Stir Fried with Kadalai Paruppu/Chana Dal And Cumin Seeds


When you least expect, that's when things will go wrong. Not enough with the 5 days of unexpected turmoil (read at - Fish Soup With OkraMalaysian Style Fried Mee Hoon and Eggplant With Curry Leaves), another 2 days of more turmoil. Wifi crashed, computer crashed and I almost crashed as well. Anyway, life has to go on and I still cooked. Thanks to my neighbor for sharing his password and thanks to my other half for allowing me to use his computer and here I am again.  


All the more, for this Saturday vegetarian meal, I manage to put up three dishes (rasam (with the balance of the home made rasam podi) and potato and spinach stir fried (aloo palak) including this side dish - cabbage, chana dal, cumin seeds and curry leaves stir fried for its simple yet inviting flavours.   

Ingredients
1/2 cabbage (about 400g) - sliced/shredded
2 tbsp kadalai paruppu/chana dal (rinsed and drained off the water)
1 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 onion - sliced
1 green chilli - slice to medium size pieces
1 tsp turmeric/kunyit powder
2 tbsp oil
Salt to taste

Method
Heat oil and saute onion and chilli.
Add cumin seeds and dhal.
Stir until they splatter.  
Put the rest of the ingredients (cabbage, turmeric and salt) 
Stir to soften cabbage.
Remove from heat.

    So so glad your domain thing got sorted out and you got the help and assistance. I struggled with google to get my account reinstated when it seemed to be hacked, but it all turned out well.

  22. Simple dishes are actually the ones that are the most delicious. My Mother made cabbage stir fry so frequently..and we loved it. This one is even better with the channa dal. Google definitely has lived up to it's name. It is so important to provide that kind of service to build customer loyalty.
