cabbage chutney recipe

Cabbage chutney recipe explained with step by step pictures and a video. This cabbage chutney can be served with either dose or idli or rice. Cabbage chutney is prepared using red chili, urad dal, onion and tomato. This is a no-coconut chutney and tastes very good.

If you want to prepare a spicy and tasty chutney for dose or idli, that too without coconut, then this is the perfect recipe you are looking for. This cabbage chutney tastes too good and very easy to prepare. I have posted many no-coconut chutneys on this website like tasty onion chutney and tasty onion-tomato chutney recipes. These chutneys can be served along with dose or idli or rice.

Cabbage is a low calorie, fiber-rich, modified-leafy vegetable. It is a good source of vitamin K, vitamin C and vitamin B6. Cabbage can be eaten raw, steamed, boiled, or roasted. I have posted two more tasty cabbage recipes on this website like kosu rice bath or cabbage rice, kosu palya or cabbage stir fry, cabbage vade and cabbage dose or dosa recipes.

I have used one tomato in this onion chutney. But you can replace tomato with tamarind juice, if you like the cabbage chutney that way.. I keep preparing this onion chutney very often. This is a versatile chutney and goes well with dosa, rice and chapathi. Since this chutney is free from cabbage smell, one can not make out that it is a cabbage chutney.

Since coconut is not used in this recipe, you can store it in the fridge and use it for 2 - 3 days.
