Easy Cabbage Kootu

Rasam is one of my comforting food, but after that i can enjoy a simple vegetable kootu just with a bowl of rice and spicy lemon pickle. I dont need an elaborate meal,just a kootu with channadal is quite enough to satisfy my tastebuds.While checking my recipe index, i couldnt able to see my cabbage kootu i usually prepare with channadal, this time when i prepared this simple, easy breezy cabbage kootu for our yesterday's lunch i immediately clicked it to post today. This fingerlicking kootu goes awesome even with chappathis or else with rice.Sending this simple,easy kootu to my own event CWS-Channadal.

1/2kg Cabbage (chopped)
1cup Channadal
1no Onion (chopped)
2nos Green chillies(slit opened)
1tbsp Ginger (chopped)
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1tsp Mustard seeds+Urad dal
1tsp Cumin seeds
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
3nos Dry red chillies
Few curry leaves

Pressure cook channadal with turmeric powder with enough water for 3 hisses and put off the stove.

Heat oil, add the mustard seeds,urad dal,cumin seeds,dry red chillies and fry, once they turns brown add the asafoetida powder and curry leaves.

Add the chopped onions,slit opened green chillies and saute until the onions turns transculent.

Now add the chopped ginger,chopped cabbage and saute everything for few minutes until the cabbage shrinks a bit.

Finally add the cooked dal and bring to boil. Cook in simmer until the veggies get well cooked.

Put off the stove and serve hot with rice.
