Cabbage Chutney

Cabbage chutney is goes well with dosa varieties and we got to know of this recipe from Padma aunty, my sister’s mother in law. I have made my version with slight changes to the original recipe.

Original recipe Source: Padma Aunty


1. Cabbage – 1 cup chopped
2. Onion – 1 sliced
3. Green chilies – 4
4. Oil – 1 tbsp
5. Lemon – 1/2
6. Salt to taste
7. Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
8. Urad dal – 1 tbsp
9. Curry leaves – 1 spring
10. Asafoetida – 1 pinch


Step 1: Heat oil in a pan and prepare tempering with asafoetida, mustard seeds, urad dal, curry leaves and pour it in a bowl.
Step 2: In the same pan add some drops of oil and add green chilies to it, then the onion and finally add cabbage into it and saute for 3 minutes. Now turn off heat and let it cool down a bit.
Step 3: In a mixer jar add the vegetables with some salt and juice of half a lemon. Grind it to a slightly grainy consistency with minimum water as the cabbage would leave out some water.
Step 4: Spoon the chutney into tempering and mix well. Serve with hot dosa or idlies.
