Years ago, when I first tasted this lovely combo of Cabbage and Bengal Gram Dal/Chana Dal/Split Chickpeas from our school canteen, I was totally fascinated with it. This was a new Upperi (side dish) for me. It was never made by my mom. Years later, here I am with the recipe for making a wonderful Side Dish with Cabbage and Bengal Gram Dal (Kadala Parippu). This Cabbage Kadala Parippu Upperi reminds me of the good old school days when I used to have lunch at the school Canteen with my friend Devi.
