Cabbage Channa Dal Fry

Cabbage Senaga pappu and tomato rasam is a delicious combination.Mom used to prepare this dish not very often but occasionally .Last week I've prepared sorakaya channa dal which tasted heavenly and my friend tahemeem has posted this recipe on her blog which motivated me to try it.You can find her recipe in this link cabbage-fry-with-chana-dal .
Cabbage - 1/2 (finely chopped)
Channa Dal - 3/4 cup(washed & soaked)
Garlic - 3 cloves
Onion -1 small
Green Chillies - 3-4(According to taste)
Turmeric - A pinch
Salt - to taste
Spring onion - 2 tsp(optional)
Cilantro - 4 tsp
Coriander powder -1/4 tsp(optional)
Cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 2-3tsp
1.Chop the cabbage,onions,green chillies,cilantro,spring onions,1 garlic clove.Crush rest of the garlic with little cumin seeds & keep them aside.
2.Boil channa dal until the dal is just half cooked ,its tastes good when the dal is crunchy & not soft for this dish especially.
3.Heat oil in a pan add cumin seeds once they start spluttering add onion,green chillies,garlic and saute them for 3-4 min.Now add turmeric,cabbage,spring onions and cook it covered for 5-8 min depending on the quantity.
4.Add channa dal and fry the cabbage until its cooked .Add rest of the crushed garlic with cumin,cilantro and mix it nicely.
Switch off the heat an enjoy the cabbage channa dal with rice/roti.Rasam goes very well with this dish.
