For day 3 of BM# 22, Cooking with Chickpeas, I have a dish that uses Chana dal, Senagapappu (in telugu).  My mom made this curry with cabbage, but this can be made with green beans, cluster beans or even spinach. A very healthy and delicious side dish for rice or roti.

Instructions
  1. Pressure cook chana dal for 1-2 whistles or until cooked but still intact (dal should not turn mushy for a dry curry). Keep aside.
  2. Heat 2tsp oil in a saute pan, add the seeds and once they start to splutter  add the green chilies and cabbage. Cover and cook until cabbage is cooked through and tender, about 10-12 minutes.
  3. Next add the cooked dal, grated coconut and salt. Cook for another minute and serve.
Recipe Notes

This is a very quick curry to make. The only time consuming part is chopping cabbage.
