Cook's Hideout: Indian Style Cabbage Rice

March 08, 2011

Indian Style Cabbage Rice

This is going to be a short post. Have been a little busy at work and at home today. So will leave you with this simple and spicy cabbage rice. I started out making sauce for pasta with some cabbage, but ended up adding leftover rice to it and the end result was quite tasty. Here's how I made it.

Cabbage Rice
Rice - 2 cups, cooked
Cabbage - 3 cups, chopped (3/4 of a medium size head)
Onion - 1 medium, chopped
Carrot - 1 small, chopped
Red chili powder - 1/2tsp
Kitchen King Masala - 1/2 tsp
Salt - to taste
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Ginger + Garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Tomato paste - 2tsp

  • Heat 1tbsp oil in a pan, add mustard and cumin seeds and once they start sputtering, add onions and saute until translucent, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Add ginger+garlic paste and cook for another minute. Next add carrots and cabbage; cover and cook for 12-15 minutes or until cabbage is tender.
  • Add tomato paste, salt, masala and red chili powder. Cook for another 3 minutes.
  • Add the cooked rice and mix well. Cook for couple minutes. Turn off the heat and let stand for at least 5 minutes. Serve as is or with some yogurt.
