This is a simple no onion no garlic, green and purple cabbage kootu prepared with fresh ground coconut, curry leaves and cilantro masala.
Either one variety of cabbage can be used for this kootu.
Moong dal is optional. I have tried with and without moong dal. Also adjust the amount of moong dal as per your preference. For this measure, I would go unto 1/4 cup or 1/3 cup.
We grind roasted gram dal to provide thick consistency for the kootu. So if you want thin consistency, you skip and also add more water.
Adjust salt and red chillies according to your preference.
A small half inch piece of ginger can be added while grinding the masala.
If you are not using pressure cooker for boiling veggies,
Just pressure cook the moong dal and mash it well.
After tempering, add the chopped cabbages and salt. Spring some water and cover and cook till the cabbage becomes soft. After that add the mashed dal and masala and follow as mentioned above.
