I like my veggies to have a crunch. More so when the main food is Dal and chawal [rice]. I particularly like to cook cabbage in a stir fry way with very little oil. The texture and the bite in this dish is just amazing. Simple Dal Rice and cabbage makes any meal a special one. Add a cup of natural yogurt and some salad on the side.
Perfect.. Now where is my Pillow?
Here is how I make this:
2 cups of finely sliced cabbage
a few curry leaves
1 tsp toasted channa dal
1 tsp oil [sesame oil prefrably] salt as per taste
2 green chillies slit length wise.
heat the wok. Add the oil. Add the green chillies, channa dal, curry leaves. Stir.
Add the cabbage. Stir fry for about 3 minutes until cooked but crunchy. This timing would depend on how thinly you have sliced the cabbage.
Add the salt. Stir a couple of times. Serve Hot off the stove.
