Cabbage Senagapappu Vepudu

Cabbage stir fry is a very common dish made at home. Today, for the first time,I have made it in Andhra style. I followed the recipe from I did make few small changes in the recipe.
Senagapappu means chana dal ( Bengal gram/ kadalai paruppu) in Telugu and vepudu means fry.

Chana dal really compliments this dish very well. It’s easy to make and very tasty indeed. It’s very heathy and can be served as a salad as well:)


Chopped cabbage – 4 heaped cups

Chana dal ( Bengal gram/ kadala paruppu)- 1/2 cup

Turmeric powder- 1/4th tsp

Salt to taste

Oil – 2 tsps

Mustard – 1 tsp

Curry leaves – few

Hing ( asafoetida/ perungayam) – 2 pinches

To grind


Grated coconut – 1/2 cup

Green chillies – 2

Chopped coriander leaves – 2 tbsps

Ginger – 1/2 inch


Wash and soak chana dal for 30 mins. Drain and keep it aside.

Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard. When it starts spluttering, add curry leaves and hing.

Sauté for few seconds and then add chopped cabbage, soaked chana dal, turmeric powder and salt. Mix well and add 1/2 cup of water.

Close the pan with a lid, reduce the flame and cook till the cabbage and chana dal becomes soft and dry.

Grind coconut, green chillies, coriander leaves and ginger coarsely and add it to the cooked cabbage. Mix well and check for the seasonings. Cook for 2-3 mins and take it off the gas.

Serve it with rice and rasam ( chaaru )/ sambar/ dal 🙂
