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

Asafoetida: 1tsp

Salt: to taste
