A vadai with the goodness of cabbage
Muttakose vadai is a dish I learnt to make from my mother. Because it is a steamed dish, it hardly absorbs oil and retains the nutrients.

Bengal gram (Channa dal): 1 cup
Split pigeon pea (Toor dal): 1cup
Green gram (Moong dal): 1 cup
Oil: 4 tsp
Red chillies: 10
Salt: to taste
Curry leaves: a few
Soak all three varieties of gram in water for 30 minutes.

Make vadais by steaming it on idli plates.
Fry the steamed vadai in a pan with 2 tsp of oil till it turns crispy.
