Chickpea and Cabbage dry Sabji

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Cabbage is regular vegetable prepared in my house. I use cabbage to make parathas, Thali peeth, fritters, rice, salad,  Cabbage dry curry mixed with toor dal, chana dal or yellow moong dal.
But I have never tried it with Chickpeas.  When I was browsing the recipes for cabbage, I came through THIS  recipe from  My Diverse Kitchen. Suddenly I remembered the ongoing event by Srivalli and Nithu.
That was it. I decided to make it the same day.
We all enjoyed this new taste.
As I am sending this to Nithu's event also, I would like to give the recipe details. (And I reduced the quantity also)
Ingredients :
Chickpeas - 1 cup. cooked(firm)
Shredded cabbage - 1cup
Oil - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1tsp
Urad dal - 2 tsp
Curry leaves - few
Asafetida Powder - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
Green Chillies - 2 slit lengthwise
Salt to taste

Cook the cabbage in Microwave on HIGH for 8 to 10 minutes.
Heat the oil, add mustard seeds. When splutter add urad dal and wait till it is brown. Add the curry leaves, asafetida powder and chillies. 
Mix well, add the cabbage, chickpeas, turmeric powder and salt. 
Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat. 
Serve it with hot chapati or side dish for the rice.
