Cabbage pappu

This is my first attempt at making cabbage pappu. Of course, we use cabbage for kootu but never used it for dal/pappu. Also, when I searched the web for this recipe there were very few sites that had the recipe for cabbage pappu. So, here is my version with inputs from a close friend. It turned out delicious!

Ingredients

1 1/2 cup chopped cabbage
1 cup channa dal
1 tsp jeera
4 or 5 pods of garlic
1 medium onion chopped
A few curry leaves
3 or 4 red chillies broken
1 tsp mustard
A pinch of turmeric powder

Method
1. Pressure cook the dal, cabbage, jeera and 3 pods of garlic with a pinch of turmeric powder.

2. Fry the mustard, finely chopped garlic (2 or 3 pods), curry leaves and red chillies.
3. Next add the onions and sauté until soft.
4. Slightly mash the dal-cabbage mixture with the back of a spoon and add to the onion mixture.
5. Serve hot with rice.
