Cabbage with Fresh Garbanzo Beans

Adding protein to veggies while preparing subzis is a common thing in our cooking. Adding various beans and dals like toordal, moongdal, fresh soybeans, green peas will increase the nutrition value besides enhancing the taste factor. Today's recipe has the addition of fresh garbanzo beans to cabbage. Unlike the dried version chana, fresh garbanzo are so sweet and tender that one would love to snack on them instead of adding to some thing else. Ingredients needed: Cabbage, finely chopped - 4 cups Green garbanzo beans (removed from the pods)- 1/4 cup A handful of fresh, grated coconut Finely chopped green chillies - 2 Salt For popu/seasoning - 1 tbsp oil, 1 tsp each of chanadal, uraddal and mustard seeds, A few curry leaves Cooking part: Heat oil in a skillet and add all the seasoning ingredients in that order. When mustard seeds start to pop and the dals start turn to red, add the green chillies and saute for about 30 seconds and add the cabbage to the skillet. Cook the cabbage till it is done with in between stirring. It would have turned tender. To this cabbage, add the coconut, garbanzo beans and salt and mix well. Let it sit for a couple of minutes, mix agian and turn off the stove. Post a Comment
