After a delicious start with the no fire chocolate balls, I decided to share this delicious Mixed Rice Variety, this time made with cabbage. While most time cabbage reeks, surprisingly you won't even find the smell from this time.
It's been a while since I updated my Lunch Box Series, though there have been dishes that had been packed for lunch. I have been very particular about my lunch box being featured. So here is my lunch box again with the rice and vegetable I took to work. When kids and hubby were away last week, I enjoyed Amma's cooking and planned extensively on cooking new stuff that could be clicked away.
Infacy hubby dear had given strict orders on making the best of the time and make posts. Well, it was hard to cook with nobody at home. However, we still managed to make something interesting. As I was busy with Bake-a-thon posts, and baking, Amma was busy making my lunch. She made this Masala Cabbage Rice from some cookery show that she saw or maybe some clipping, I am not sure which.
The rice tends to be quite spicy, so you can control it with the way you chop your green chilies or the amount of red chili you use.
Either way, this is wonderful rice, making sure you can't smell the cabbage, at the same time taking this to another level. This makes a delicious lunch box dish and I packed mine with a bowl of Bhindi stir fry
