The following are worth looking into :

Sabhaa Parv : Sahadev sends Ghatotkach to Vibheeshan in Lankaa.
--According to Ganguli's MBH, 3-Youth/22, Sahadev never sent Ghatokach to Lankaa - in fact there is no mention of Ghatotkach during the whole Digvijaya Yaatraa.

Van Parv : The boar who attacks Arjun (in Kiraat story) is Mukaasur who is sent by Duryodhan

Udyog Parv : After meeting Karn , Krishn meets Ashwatthaamaa

Theses are mentioned in the classical MBH retellings of Malayaalam Shri Mahaabhaaratam Kilippattu, Bhaaratagaathaa (Cherusseri Bharatam ) and Bhaaratam Pattu. These are also mentioned in Tamil retellings of Mahaabhaarat.

For a summary of other interesting episodes, which might be found in Kumbaakonam Edition, one may read the article, Mahabharata Variations in Malayalam available at Mahabharata Resources  at
