Cabbage Rice

Cabbage is a vegetable which acts as a cleanser for our digestive system. This leafy vegetable provides enough fibre content required by the body. Cabbage Rice is something which I tried later in the evening yesterday. It tasted heavenly delicious and to be honest it was my first try on white cabbage. Have tried it with red cabbage earlier. Red cabbage gives good colour to your rice and no other colouring is required. I wanted to try with white ones this time and to colour the rice I used turmeric powder. With just minimum spices I could bring on the serving platter an awesome rice item for dinner. Here I share the simple recipe with you all.
