For the last day of cooking rice dishes I made this simple and delicious cabbage rice.I had bookmarked this cabbage rice since long and couldn't do it before as I usually make cabbage pulao that we all love to the core .
But let me tell you ,I am glad I have tried this cabbage rice.The South Indian flavors gave it a nice taste and texture and it has become another favorite rice dish.This recipe can be made using leftover rice and served as the perfect lunch with some curd and salad on those lazy weekends.
1 cup basmati rice
1 cup cabbage,shredded
2 green chillies,chopped
few curry leaves
2 dry red chillies
