Here is a tasty rice delicacy, which we put together especially for those who love south Indian food.

The Cabbage Pulao is tempered with the traditional South Indian combination of mustard seeds and urad dal, along with red chillies, onions, parboiled chana dal and other ingredients that give the dish a unique texture and flavour.

We have included more of cabbage and less of brown rice in this recipe, to keep the fibre quotient high.

Looked tempting so I tried. Truly a south indian style main course which needs no accompaniment. the cabbage and chana dal are dominating in texture and flavour both. will make it once more.
