Simple Cabbage Garbanzo Curry

This is another recipe I learned from my cousin Rashmi. During our last visit to her place for get together, she made this curry. I really loved the combination of cabbage and Garbanzo beans. I usually add green peas with cabbage. But this is something new to me. So thought of trying it today.

  1. Cabbage - 3 cups ( chopped)
  2. Garbanzo beans - 1 cup ( I used canned beans cos its already cooked)
  3. Salt to taste
  4. Oil - 1 tsp
  5. Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  6. Urad dhall - 1/2 tsp
  7. Red chillies - 1 or 2 (acc to taste
  8. Shredded coconut - 1 tsp (optional)
  9. curry leaves - for garnishing
First drain the required amount of garbanzo beans from the can and keep it aside. Add the chopped cabbage in a pan, add required amount of water and salt(just enough for cabbage cos beans will have salt), cook it nicely. Make sure its not mushy. Drain the extra water from cabbage and keep it aside. Pre heat oil in the same pan, splutter mustard seeds, fry urad dhall & red chillies to golden brown, add cooked cabbage and garbanzo beans and mix everything together. Also add the coconut and mix well. Turn off the stove. Garnish it with curry leaves. It just took me 7 minutes to finish this curry.
