Cabbage rice recipe
Cabbage rice- Mildly spiced Indian variety rice using cabbage. Cabbage rice is an easy lunch box recipe and a quick one-pot meal that can be made for lunch or dinner. It is a very simple recipe that can be made by bachelors too. I first tried cabbage rice for dinner and my husband simply loved it and asked me to prepare it for his lunch the next day too. I came up with this recipe when I ran
out of all vegetables and was left with just a piece of cabbage and capsicum. Addition of capsicum gives a nice aroma to the rice and this recipe is sure to appeal to even those who do not like cabbage as much. For other interesting vegetable rice options look for capsicum rice, tindora rice, vaangi baath recipes.

INGREDIENTS:

BASMATHI RICE 1/2 CUP
FINELY CHOPPED CABBAGE + CAPSICUM 1/2 CUP + 2 TBLSP
ONION 1

Great recipe.. noticed one small thing. I guess you meant 1 cup basmati rice because you asked to cook it with 1.5 cups water..
