I think I have mentioned more than a dozen times here that I love cabbage.So when the usual chutneys get monotonous,I prepare this one and no one in my family can guess what it is unless I tell them. MIL who is not a huge fan of cabbage has this chutney without a word and even if I mention that I have used cabbage,she thinks I am joking!!
Gram dhal-1 tablespoon
Urad dhal-1 teaspoon
Tamarind extract -1/2 a teaspoon
Salt to taste
- Heat oil in a pan and put in the dhals.Roast till it just starts turning brown.
- Put in cabbage,onion,tomato,red chillies and saute till the onion is transparent and tomato gets mushy.This has to be done on medium heat.
- Cool and grind to a paste with tamarind extract and salt.
- This can be served as a side dish with idli /dosa or with steamed rice.
- Seasoning is optional.
