Cabbage Rice

- 1 cup cooked rice
- 1 cabbage shredded
- 1 cup peas (I used frozen peas)
- 3 tomatoes chopped to bite size pieces
- 1/2 cup boiled black eye peas
- 2 tbsp curry podi
- 1 tsp garam masala (optional)
- 1 tsp jeera powder
- 1 tsp chili powder
- Salt to taste

Seasoning ingredients:
- 1 tspn jeera seeds
- 5 cloves
- 2 green chilies (slit in half)
- 1 inch ginger (cut into pieces)
- sprig of curry leaves
- 1 tspn oil


1. In a pan add the oil and add all the seasoning ingredients.
2. Once they turn to a golden brown add the tomatoes. Fry till the tomato becomes soft and looses its shape. Now add the cabbage, turmeric and salt. Cook till it is tender. Finally add the frozen peas and the black eye peas. As these are already cooked they take just a couple of minutes to mix together.
3. Add curry podi, garam masala (if using), jeera powder, chili powder and rice. Mix it well so the powders are incorporated well with the rice and vegetables. Let it cook for another five minutes in low heat.

Garnish with coriander and serve it hot with raita or tomato thoku
