Cabbage stir fry is a very common dish made at home. Today, for the first time,I have made it in Andhra style. I followed the recipe from sailusfood.com. I did make few small changes in the recipe.
Senagapappu means chana dal ( Bengal gram/ kadalai paruppu) in Telugu and vepudu means fry.
Chana dal really compliments this dish very well. It’s easy to make and very tasty indeed. It’s very heathy and can be served as a salad as well:)
Chopped cabbage – 4 heaped cups
Chana dal ( Bengal gram/ kadala paruppu)- 1/2 cup
Turmeric powder- 1/4th tsp
Salt to taste
Oil – 2 tsps
Mustard – 1 tsp
Curry leaves – few
Hing ( asafoetida/ perungayam) – 2 pinches
Grated coconut – 1/2 cup
Green chillies – 2
Chopped coriander leaves – 2 tbsps
Ginger – 1/2 inch
Wash and soak chana dal for 30 mins. Drain and keep it aside.
Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard. When it starts spluttering, add curry leaves and hing.
Sauté for few seconds and then add chopped cabbage, soaked chana dal, turmeric powder and salt. Mix well and add 1/2 cup of water.
Close the pan with a lid, reduce the flame and cook till the cabbage and chana dal becomes soft and dry.
