Cabbage kootu

Love this Cabbage kootu. It in itself is an entire dish. So flavorful and so easy to make.I make this dish very often and for me it comes inside one of my comfort food categories.My mom makes this very often too and I can eat it with rotis, rice or just a big bowl of it by itself especially on cold days.


1/2 head of cabbage chopped
1/4 cup split moong daal

3 green chillies
1/4 cup coconut
1 tsp cumin seeds

2 tsp Oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp bengal gram daal (chana daal)
2 pinches Asafoetida/ hing
5-6 curry leaves
1 red chilli cut into 2


Pressure cook the cabbage and the daal for 3 whistles.
In the meantime , grind the chillies ,coconut, cumin seeds adding water to a paste.

Combine the ground mixture and the cabbage and daal in a pan.
Add salt
Bring to a boil and switch off the gas.

Heat oil in a small pan for the seasoning.
Add ingredients for seasoning and saute till the daal turns golden.

Add to the kootu.

Enjoy hot with rice and pappad.
