Cabbage - 200 gms.
Onion - 1/2 cup (chopped)
Ginger - 1 tbsp (finely chopped)
green chilli - 2 (slit)
curry leaf - 1 sprig
Shredded coconut - 2 tbsp
Oil - 2 tsp
mustard seed - 1/2 tsp
cumin seed - 1/4 tsp
Channa dhal (Bengal gram) - 3 tbsp
Salt - to taste

Soak the channa dhal for 1 hour.
In the mean time, finely chop the cabbage and keep aside.
Heat oil in a wok.
Add mustard seeds and let them pop.
Immediately add chopped onion, curry leaf, green chilly , ginger and stir well til the onion gets semi cooked.
Now add the chopped cabbage along with the soaked channa dhal.
Add 1/2 cup water and cook it tightly covered till the channa dhal gets soft.

delicious cabbage poriyal! I should try your version soon..

Dear, as promised I discussed the plagiarism matter with my son. He took time and effort to find out who did it. It is one Palaniyappan from Chennai. Alfred has left a comment and a link on your blog to tell you what to do regarding the matter.

Hi Viki ...i think you owe to speak something about the whole plagiarism drama...i had my doubts n had mailed you these lines..........
But i have serious doubts about the motive of this plagiarism where the blogger has chosen the blogs who watermark their pictures...i dunno if i am correct but looking at the kind of ads she/he has displayed, it seems like she wants to attract visitors the way it is going on right know what i mean....the original bloggers find out...spread the word among other bloggers n she gets all the is working for her...just think about it..

have been busy for the past few weeks with my own things n could not follow the whole things but this is very unfortunate...
