Red cabbage chutney /thuvayal

red cabbage chutney/thuvayal Thuvayal or chutney is very popular side dish in tamil nadu. It is made with lentils, bottlegourd, ridge gourd or cabbage. I started buying this red cabbage only after coming to singapore and usually used it in my salads. I once made a simple stir fry, but somehow I did not like the taste. It was quite different from the usual stir fry we do with the green cabbage. I buy it very rarely.
When I bought it this time, I was wondering what to do with it. I suddenly remembered a hot chutney with green cabbage , my friend made for me once. And then I got the idea of making thuvayal /chutney with it. I knew it was going to be good. It tasted really nice and I think I am going to do this whenever I buy this one.

Red cabbage- 200 gms(chopped fine)
Tuvar dal- 1tbsp
channa dal- 1tbsp
Red chillies- 8 to 10
Mustard seeds- 1tsp
Asafoetida- a pinch
Salt to taste
Oil- 1tsp

Heat oil in a pan. Add the red chillies,tuvar dal and channa dal. Stir till they turn golden brown. Then add the chopped cabbage. Keep stirring till it cooks well. Add little salt. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Cool a bit and grind it to a coarse paste sprinkling a little water before grinding. Season with mustard seeds and asafoetida. Mix well.
You can have this with rice, chapatis , dosas etc.
