Potato cabbage curry

I always look for many ways to make my cabbage curry more interesting. One day I coined this 'new' curry by adding some potatoes to it. Surprisingly it turned out very successful, almost similar to the 'poori kilangu masala. Try this and make everyone love cabbage:)

Potato - 3
cabbage - 150 gm
onion - 1
green chilli - 6
ginger- 2 tsp (chopped)
curry leaves - a sprig
mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
channa dhal (Bengal gram) - 2 tbsp
turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
oil- 1 tbsp
Besan flour - 2 tsp
salt - to taste
cumin - 1/2 tsp

Wash and cook the potatoes . Peel the skin and mash in to big chunks. Keep aside.
Chop the onion, green chillies , curry leaves and ginger.
Heat oil in a wok. Add channa dal and then mustard seeds.
After the mustard seeds splutter add the chopped onion, green chilli, curry leaves and ginger. Saute them a till onion wilts. Add the finely chopped cabbage and stir well. Sprinkle a handful of water and cook covered.
Now add turmeric, cooked potatoes and salt.
Mix 2 tsp besan flour, cumin with 1/4 cup water and add that to the boiling potatoes.
Bring to a boil and switch off.
If desired, garnish with freshly chopped cilantro.

Potato cabbage curry is ready.

Serving suggestion:
Serve with roti or chapati or like masal dosai.

When onion was in high demand last year (i guess) in India - everyone subst. the onion to cabbage.
This one sounds good for puris or even dosa.
