Dry red chillies - 3
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Urad dal - 2 tblsp

1. Heat oil in a pan, splatter the mustard seeds, dry red chillies and curry leaves.

Thank you for the recipe. Are you supposed to soak or do something with this dal before putting it in the cabbage? Maybe this is supposed to be implied but I haven't worked with it before and I would like to try it. The dal comes as a dried bean so should I soak it or something before adding it to the pan? Thanks again!

Hi Polly, you do not have to soak the dals. We are roasting it in oil for couple of minutes. This will make it crispy. Later when we add the cabbe, the moisture from the cabbage is enough to make it softer. The dal adds a nice crispy texture to the dish. Try it and let us know how you liked it.
