Kale reminds me of drumstick leaves and is a nice substitute since I do not get drumstick leaves. Kale fry is one of my favorite dishes and here I have added fennel to it as well. I usually treat the fennel bulb similar to onion and use for dishes where I would use onion. This stir fry is simple and the lentils and fennel add a ton of flavor to the dish. Cabbage, carrots, etc. can also be cooked this way. Off to the recipe.

Heat oil and splutter mustard seeds. Add urad and chillies; when dal turns brown add the fennel and channa dal.
After about 5 minutes add the kale and salt. When kale and dal is cooked add coconut and mix well. Serve with rice or roti.
Since channa dal takes a while to cook, you can cook it separately and add it along with coconut finally.
