Yellow Dahl with Cabbage

Usually in curries, vegetables like potato and spinach are common. But using cabbage is probably something new. In the Netherlands green cabbage is known as 'white cabbage' and is usually onsumed as sauerkraut. But using the cabbage as is works surprisingly well in curry. Leaving it in large wedges makes this vegetable the center of the curry, and reduces prep time.
