Cabbage Appe

I make appe pretty regularly. Every now and then, I change the recipe by changing the proportion of daals, rice, adding quinoa, adding 17 beans instead of just regular daals or using green peas daal and so on. The other day, I had a chunk of cabbage in the fridge. So I decided to make mixed daal appes with cabbage as a snack turned meal.
