Purple Cabbage Rice – Blogging Marathon Day 4

I have always used Cabbage to make Kootu or plain curry with Grated Coconut and green chillies. Never tried them as Rice Mix.  Once Saw Nithya’s Purple Cabbage Rice and Fell in love with that Color. Came across a Cabbage Rice (Normal Green Cabbage)recipe in Mallika Badrinath’s CookBook, made it using Purple Cabbage for today’s Lunch!!! Tasted so Good and though I didnt get the color like Nithya, it was fine.  Surprise your fellow’s with this Delicious, Colorful Rice, if they don’t find this Nutritious Veggie Interesting!!!!
