I have been using Savoy cabbage instead of the regular head cabbage after I read this post on Indira’s blog. As she says it is a few cents expensive, but if that comes with a boost in nutritional value, then I’m all for it. This dish tastes great with rice and sambar or even with rotis.
Savoy Cabbage – 1 cup, shredded
Mixed vegetables – ½ cup (I used frozen mixed vegetables, thawed)
Moong dal – ½ cup, soaked for 30 mins
Green chilies – 4
Mustard seeds – ½ tsp
Cumin seeds – ½ tsp
Curry leaves – 6
Red chilies – 2
Salt – to taste
- Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan, add the seeds and when they splutter add green chilies, red chilies and curry leaves.
- Sauté for 30 seconds, add cabbage, other veggies (you can use carrots, beans, peas etc) and soaked moong dal.
- Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the veggies are tender. Add salt, mix well and enjoy.
