I had this recipe with recipe and chapatis in most of the hotels and love it much. But i do not know how to cook it and was searching for it. One day when i was reading a book, i saw this recipe and tried out in my kitchen since its very new for me. But unbelievable! this is the dish for which i was longing for. OMG! i got it at last!

Broken Peeled Green Gram – ¼ cup
Onion – 1 (finely chopped)

Green Chilly – 3 (cut it lengthwise)
Grated Coconut – ¼ cup
Cumin Seeds – 1 tsp
Aniseed – ¼ tsp
Chilly Powder – ½ tsp

Grind grated coconut, cumin seeds and aniseeds together to a fine paste by adding enough water.
Add peeled green gram and turmeric power in a cooker and let it cook for 4 whistles. Open the cooker and add cabbage and cook for 3 more whistles or until the cabbage and dhal is well cooked and mashed.
Heat oil in a pan and add onions, tomatoes and green chillies and fry it well until the tomatoes are mashed well. Add chilly powder and grinded paste and fry it until the raw smell leaves off. Now add cooked dhal and cabbage and cook it until the gravy thickens well.
