Masala Cabbage Curry and Spicy Dal!

Last weekend, I made two dishes. One was Masala Cabbage Curry and the other was Spicy Dal (Lentils)! Both dishes are easy to make and very low in fat. They are both high in fiber, nutritious and quite tasty!

Here are my recipes:

Masala Cabbage Curry:

Ingredients:
  1. 1 small cabbage, shredded
  2. 2 Red Bell Peppers, de-seeded and sliced into longish pieces
  3. Mustard seeds - 1 Tsp
  4. Grapeseed/coconut oil - 1 Tbsp
  5. 1 large onion - chopped
  6. 4 garlic cloves - minced
  7. 1 Tbsp Garam Masala
  8. 5 green chilies - diced
Preparation:
  1. In a large pan, heat up the oil. When the oil is hot, mustard seeds, let'em splutter. Next, add the garlic and the onions. Turn down the heat and saute them, until the onions start to get tender.
  2. Turn up the heat to medium. Add the cabbage and the diced chilies. Put a lid on the pot and cook covered until the cabbage is almost done.
  3. Add the red bell peppers, cook until they peppers turn slightly soft --- not mushy!
  4. Stir-in the Garam Masala and add salt to taste!
    Spicy Dal:

    Ingredients:
    1. 2 cups of cooked Dal/Lentils
    2. 5 curry leaves

    5. 3 Tomatoes - sliced

    7. 1 large onion - chopped
    8. 4 garlic cloves - minced
    9. 1 Tbsp Sambar Powder
    10. 5 green chilies - diced
    Preparation:
    1. In a large pan, heat up the oil. When the oil is hot, mustard seeds, let'em splutter. Next, add the garlic and the onions. Turn down the heat and saute them, until the onions start to get tender.
    2. Turn up the heat to medium. Add the diced chilies, curry leaves and the Red Bell Peppers. Put a lid on the pot and cook covered until the Red Bell Peppers are almost done.
    3. Add the lentils, cook for 2 more minutes on medium heat.
