Cabbage Rice | Cabbage Rice Recipe

No story this time, not even the miniscule amount I write usually. Just a good bowl of hot cabbage rice, garnished with banana chips (or benana chips, as TH calls them, to tease the malayali accent that I supposedly have) and served with love (not so much for the afore-mentioned person though. Hmpff!)

This a quick and easy rice recipe if you are short on vegetables in hand and just want a mixed vegetable-added rice to serve for lunch or dinner. Cabbage adds a nice flavour to the rice and when cooked with the minimum ingredients in this recipe, this is a sure winner. So with that, let's check out how to make cabbage rice, shall we?

Cabbage Rice Recipe

1.5 cups cooked rice
1 cup shredded cabbage
1/4 cup green peas
1 small onion, chopped small (optional)
3 green chilies, sliced (adjust to taste)
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1 tsp cumin seeds / jeera / jeerakam
2 tbsp coriander powder / malli podi
1 tsp channa dal / kadala paruppu
A pinch turmeric powder
A few curry leaves
2 tbsp oil
Salt to taste

How to make Cabbage Rice:

1. Transfer the chopped cabbage, a pinch of salt, green peas and turmeric powder to a vessel. Sprinkle some water. Keep on low fire and cook closed until the cabbage is soft.
2. Heat the oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds and channa dal.
3. When the jeera starts spluttering and the dal turns a light brown, add the green chilies, curry leaves and onion. Fry until the onions turn a light brown. (If using onions, of course)
4. To this, add the coriander powder and the ginger-garlic paste. Fry for 1-2 mins.
5. Now add the cooked cabbage and peas to the above. Add salt. Mix and combine well.
6. Remove from fire and combine the rice with the mixture.

Serve cabbage rice hot with papad.
