Cabbage Tomato Dal

Short story about this Dal:

Earlier I never used to eat this dal. Once when was small I got fever. My parents were very stright at diet. My mom used to give only liquids and idly. Actually I want to eat much more. My tongue becomes tasteless and needs some spicyness to it. When nobody was in kitchen I went and saw the dishes... I found this one. I have tasted it. I felt that was good only. From that time onwards I started eating this dal.
