Cabbage rice is a simple, Maharashtrian preparation, which can be easily prepared with the ingredients we have at home. Nothing exotic in this...It is so tasty, you don't even need a raita or any side for this rice. Just a bowl of curds would suffice.
Please check my other  Rice  varieties  here
Please refer to my Glossary for any unknown terms.

Basmati rice - 1 cup
Cabbage - a small one, chopped fine
Shelled peas - 3/4 cup
Water - 1 3/4 cups
Onion - 1, chopped
Green chillies - 3
Garlic - 2 pods
Ginger - a small piece
Grated fresh coconut - 3 tbsps
Lemon juice - 2 tbsps
Salt to taste

To Season

Cooking oil - 2 tbsps
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Jeera - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Cardamom - 3
Cloves - 3
Cinnamon - 3-4 broken small sticks

Recipe Cuisine: North Indian; Category: Lunch / Dinner
Prep time: 15 mts; Cooking time: 10 - 12 mts

Serves 3-4

Both the low cal vegetables.....low in calories but high in nutrition....

Basmati rice soaked in water for 10 - 15 minutes

Cardamom, cloves and cinnamon in a cup, green chillies, ginger and garlic ground to a paste, grated coconut in another cup, onion chopped

Soaked rice drained

In a pressure cooker, heat oil and ghee, season turmeric powder and jeera first

Then add and fry the onions till they become translucent, and now, add the ground paste, and the cardamom, cloves and cinnamon

Now, add the cabbage and peas

The grated coconut and salt to taste

Mix well

Add the well heated up measured water

By now, you all would have known my way of cooking soon as steam comes, close the vent with a small cup, flames on the lowest, and cook for 10 - 12 minutes.

This is how the rice looks after 5 minutes

Fully done, now add the lemon juice, and gently mix.

Serve this excellent, exorbitant and  extra ordinary Cabbage Rice with just a bowl of yogurt...
