Cabbage Thuvayal is a type of chutney that is made of combining the cabbage,urad dal and red chili by shallow frying and grinding it to paste . It can be had with hot steamed rice on topping it with ghee. This is also goes well with idli , dosa or curd rice. The kootu varieties can be had as a side-dish for thuvayal.

My Notes :

1. Saute the cabbage and dal in low flame else it will get burnt easily. If its burnt then chutney will get the burnt smell.
