Purple Cabbage Moong Dal Fry

Pin It Now!
Purple cabbage is one of the different varieties of cabbage.They taste similar to green cabbage except for the color.They are very nutritious like other dark colored vegetables.They are a good source of vitamins and minerals like Vit A,C,K,potassium and manganese.They also contain polyphenols which are antioxidant,anti inflammatory rich.In addition to this they are a good source of dietary fibre.Here I combined this healthy vegetable with the protein rich moong dal for a delicious healthy stir fry.

Ingredients
2 cups purple cabbage chopped
1/4 cup yellow split moong dal(1/2 cup after cooked)
1 tbsp oil
Salt as per taste

Method
Cook moong dal in 2 cups water till fully cooked but not mushy.If using pressure cooker,cook for 1-2 whistle depending on the cooker.Drain any water left and set aside.Heat oil in a pan add seasonings like mustard,cumin seeds,chopped green chillies and curry leaves if preferred if not add the chopped cabbage,salt and stir cook till the cabbage is cooked then add the moong dal and stir to blend well.Enjoy hot with some rice or by itself.
Note:Squeeze some lemon juice in the end as per taste if preferred.Alternatively top it off with yogurt if preferred.
