Cabbage Lemon Rice

The cabbage is a green, leafy plant that forms part of the Brassicaceae family. Other members of this family include broccoli, Brussels sprouts, collards, cauliflower and kale. The leafy portion of the cabbage is generally the only portion of the plant that is eaten, either raw, cooked..Cabbage is an excellent source of vitamins K and C. Cabbage is also a very good source of dietary fiber, manganese, vitamin B6 and folate, and a good source of thiamin, riboflavin, calcium, potassium, vitamin A, tryptophan, protein and magnesium...Green cabbage is the most common type of cabbage, however you also get savory cabbage, napa cabbage, bok choy and red cabbage. Usually i prepare curries with cabbages but never as cabbage lemon rice...its really very simple, quick also easiest one..

2cups Cabbage pieces
1no Onions Chopped
2nos Green chillies slit opened
1cup Cooked rice
1tbsp Lemon Juice
1/4tsp Mustard seeds
1/4tsp Urad dal
1/4tsp Channa dal
10nos Cashew pieces
5nos Curry leaves
1/4tsp Turmeric powder

Heat oil in a large kadai...add the mustard seeds, urad dal, channa dal n cashew nuts also the curry leaves , fry them until they turns brownish, now add the chopped onion n stir them until they turns transculent, add the slit opened green chillies n stir for few seconds, add the cabbage pieces to the kadai n also add the turmeric powder n salt..stir everything well n cook in simmer without adding water n close the kadai with lid..

Stir the veggies occasionally... once the cabbage get well cooked, put off the stove..add the cooked rice to the already cooked veggies n add the lemon juice n mix everything well...
