This cabbage moong dal poriyal / muttaikose pasi paruppu poriyal is our most favorite cabbage recipes. I make this poriyal at least once in a week. I learnt this cabbage poriyal recipe from my MIL. Earlier we used to cook cabbage adding moong dal separately in a closed vessel, temper it with onion, green chilli and garnish with grated coconut.

Recently my MIL started to make this poriyal in pressure cooker directly and taught me the same. Its so easy and can be made quickly under 10 minutes. Friends, do try this easy cabbage poriyal with moong dal and enjoy with sambar rice.
