Tip: We can flap cabbage with loads of vegetables to harmonize the taste as well.
Soak the dal (Chana and moong) about 10-15 minutes before to start. Then boil and keep it aside.
Heat oil with a medium flame once hot, add mustard seeds when it split, add green Chili, garlic, ginger and curry leave one by one.
Then add onion with pinch turmeric powder and continue to cook until it gets the transparent colour.
Add tomato and fry until it gets musky.
Add cabbage, required salt and water. Close the lid and continue to cook.
Once it half boiled add cooked dal. Mix it well, simmer the flame and cook until it gets soft.
Once it did, garnish with shredded coconut and coriander leaves.
Switch off the flame and enjoy the fat-free cabbage kootu.
