Cabbage Usili

Cabbage Usili is a very simple and healthy dish with lots of proteins and fibre content. I got to know about this dish from Srivalli's Blog - "Cooking 4 all seasons".

You can find the original recipe here.

and Its my pleasure to send this recipe to Ashaji's RCI: Karnataka Event.

I added few more ingredients but tried to keep the original taste of the recipe. Instead of 5:1 ratio of cabbage and moong dal, I made with 5:2 ratio as I like the taste of moong dal.


Cabbage - 500gms
Moong dal - 200gms
Salt - to taste
Turmeric - 1/4 tbsp
Green Chillies - 2 to 3
Grated Coconut - 2 tbsp

For Tadka:

Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tbsp
Urad seeds - 1/2 tbsp
Curry leaves - few
Hing - 1/8 tbsp
Cumin (Jeera) - 1/2 tbsp


1. Boil chopped cabbage and moong dal separately and keep aside.
2. Grind the grated coconut and green chillies till fine paste.
3. In a pan, put some oil and add the ingredients listed for tadka above. When the mustard seeds starts spluttering, add ground coconut paste and then after few minutes add the boiled cabbage and moong dal.
4. I served it with chapathis. But, this would taste good with hot rice and ghee too.

Enjoy folks..:D
