Muttai-Koss Kootu / Cabbage Kootu

Muttai-Koss Kootu / Cabbage Kootu

Koss Kootu:


Cabbage 1 small head – chopped
Chana dhal 1 cup
Green chilies 3 chopped
Ginger 2″ grated
Garlic 4 cloves minced
Onion 1 large chopped
Tomato 1 crushed
Turmeric 1/4 spoon
Chili powder 1 spoon
Oil few spoons
Mustard seeds 1/4 spoon
Cumin seeds 1/4 spoon
Asafoetida 1 pinch
Curry leaves few
Cilantro to garnish.


Cook lentils with enough water, till tender but not mushy. Maybe add some salt to it. Set aside.

Heat oil in a wok, add the tempering spices followed by chilies, ginger, garlic and onions…fry real good. Then followed by tomatoes, cooked lentils and cabbage.

Further add salt, turmeric and chili powders. Cover and cook briefly, once the cabbage is done, remove lid and turn the heat to high…let the excess moisture be sucked up.

Serve warm as a side dish with your lunch.
