Cabbage and Chickpeas Curry

A very easy way to make a vegetable curry more healthy and wholesome is by adding some pulses to it. Today, I made cabbage curry with green chick peas. You can add any pulse of your choice. I added chick peas as I had some leftover.

The curry was indeed very tasty and the chick peas added a very good flavour and texture to it 🙂



Cabbage – 1/2 kg
Cooked Green chickpeas ( chole/ Konda Kadalai) – 1+1/2 cups
Oil – 1 tbsp
Mustard – 1 tsp
Red chillies – 2
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Grated coconut – 1/2 cup
Finely chopped coconut – 1/4th cup


Wash and chop the cabbage.

Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard. When it starts spluttering, add red chillies. Sauté for a sec and then add the chopped cabbage, turmeric powder and salt to taste. Mix well and sauté for few mins.

Add the cooked chick peas, mix well, close the pan with a lid and cook on a medium flame till the cabbage becomes soft and dry.

Add the grated and chopped coconut and mix well.

Serve the curry with rice and rasam/ sambar 🙂
