Cabbage Lentil Pancakes

Try this and you will never complain about cabbage being bland. The crispy pan fried pieces of cabbage and the hearty spiced lentils are a wonderful combination.

Ingredients
1 cup bengal gram dal (Channa dal)
3 cups cabbage, shredded
1 medium onion, finely chopped
8-10 dried red chillies
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1″ piece ginger, minced
1/2 tsp asafoetida powder
5 curry leaves, chopped
1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
1/3 cup canola oil
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp rice flour

Method
Soak the channa dal for an hour in water. Drain and grind into a coarse paste with the dried red chillies, 1/2 tsp salt and asafoetida powder.

Heat oil in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Take 2 tbsps of the cabbage-lentil mixture, slightly flatten it with your palms and gently place on the oil. Fry for 4-5 minutes on one side until completely cooked through and browned. Flip over and cook for another 4 minutes.
