Cabbage chutney

This chutney is a bit differentt from the usual coconut, onion chutney..
I adapted the recipe from a tamil magazine.The original recipe calls for coconut, i skipped coconut altogether.Very easy to make and goes well not only with idly,dosas but with any variety rice, i tried with some curd rice.

Ingredients

Cabbage - 1 1/2 cup (chopped)
Urad dal - 1tsp
Turmeric powder -1/4tsp
Red chillies - 4
Perungayam/Asafoetida - a pinch
Curry leaves - as needed
Oil - 2tsp
Salt - as needed
Tamarind paste - 1/2tsp

Method

Heat oil in a pan, fry urad dal till golden brown, now add red chillies, curry leaves and cabbage one by one.Then add, turmeric powder,salt and asfoedita.Fry well.Switch off the heat and let it cool down.After cooling down, grind it into fine paste.Garnish with chopped coriander/curry leaves.

I'd not heard of cabbage chutney. It's almost like making a bhaji and then grinding it, sin't it? It looks awesome! Will try it sometime.

Hi Maheshwari

This chutney can also be made with left over cabbage curry. Tastes delicious. Will save your recipe.
