CABBAGE MASALA BATH /RICE

Posted in : RICE ITEMS - PULAV / MASALA BATH / BISIBELE BATH on by : Divya Suresh

A very easy to make  and tasty rice dish with lot of health benefits. I prefer to cook it specially in winters as we get fresh & quality cabbage here at that time. Half – cup of cooked cabbage would provide 47 % of your vitamin C needs for the day. Cabbage is low in calories , fat where as high in fiber. As a green leafy vegetable … cabbage has many many more health benefits. Altogether this rice is a healthy meal and ideal for tiffin box as well. For accompaniment I have prepared Pomegranate-Beetroot Raita.
