CABBAGE CURRY RECIPE – CABBAGE CURRY WITH MOONG DAL

  This is a simple version of cabbage curry which i learnt from my grandma. Generally thsi type of curry is served in weddings. At home when we have the quantity of the vegetable is less, they add moong dal to increase the volume of the curry. But this tastes too good. This is a perfect combo for vathal kuzhambu.
