Cabbage Rice

          With all the initial settling down process, I've not been able to do a post or visit my blogger friends regularly, might be in another couple of days, will be able to do so. This is one other dish that I had made earlier, cabbage rice. The main ingredient is of course cabbage, with some fresh ground masala, a very flavorful and tasty one pot meal..

Need To Have

  • Basmati Rice - 2 cups
  • Shredded Cabbage - 6 cups
  • Capsicum - 1 big chopped
  • Cumin Seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Mustard Seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Black Gram Or Urad Dal - 1 tablespoon
  • Curry Leaves - a handful to garnish

To Powder

  • Roasted Peanuts - 3 tablespoons
  • Coriander Seeds - 1 tablespoon
  • Cumin Seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Sesame Seeds - 1 teaspoon
  • Chana Dal - 1 tablespoon
  • Fenugreek Seeds - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Dried Red Chillies - 5

          Cook the basmati rice and cool it. Roast all the ingredients given under 'to powder' and grind it with the roasted peanuts into a coarse powder. Heat some oil, add the mustard and cumin seeds, when it starts spluttering, add the urad dal, fry till it turns golden. Now add the cabbage, capsicum and salt, cover and cook till done, now add the curry leaves and the ground masala and mix it well. Reduce the heat to minimum, add the cooked rice and mix it well till slightly warm. Serve it with some pappads or chips and any raitha.

Do not overcook the vegetable, the cabbage should have a slight crunch.
Chana Dal is split black chickpeas without the skin.
