Cabbage Rice

I usually don't shop for cabbage a lot.That is the last item which comes out of my refridgerator.If there are no other vegies then I use cabbage:-)....But things are changing after I started to make this delicious rice.Good for officebox,lunchbox or easy and fulfilling for lunch potlucks!

Cooked Rice-made with 2 cups rice(I use rice cooker) don't cook it mushy let it be grainy.
2 cups chopped cabbage
11/2 Tbspn Bisibelebath/vangibath powder(you can get this in any indian grocery)
2 Tbspn tamarind juice
1 chopped tomato
4 Tbspn grated frozen/fresh coconut

3 Tbspn oil
1 tspn chana dal
1/2 tspn urad dal
1/2 tspn mustard seeds
2 pinch turmeric
2 pinch hing
3 string curry leaves

1)Lets start by adding tempering to a wide pan.

2)Add oil,when hot add mustard seeds allow them to pop,add chana dal then urad dal.Then goes turmeric,hing,curry leaves.Fry till dals are golden brown.

3)Add the chopped cabbage and fry till half cooked

4)Add salt and cook till till 3/4th done.Then add tomato.

5)Add vangibath or bisibelebath powder,tamarind juice,mix well and cook it for 3 min.Add grated coconut and cook it for 3 min.Adjust salt and spice.

6)Mix the cooked rice(make sure its grainy and in room temperature).Enjoy

Note:Sometimes I add cinnamon,clove for tempering and use sambar powder or try the same recipe with sambar powder .I always have vangibath powder to make these delicious easy ricebaths and even vegetable fry(palya).Will post the recipe of vangi/bisi powder soon so u can make in bulk and store it.
