How to Make Cabbage With Dhal

  • Add mustard, cumin seeds and garlic paste to oil and let this splutter.
  • Add finely chopped cabbage and mix it well.
  • Close the vessel and allow it boil for 6 to 8 minutes on a medium flame and keep stirring occasionally.
  • When cabbage turns soft, add dhal, salt and mix well.
  • Add some more water and allow it to boil for another 7 to 8 minutes with the vessel closed. This goes very well with chapati.
