Use long grain Basmati rice to make this CABBAGE rice recipe, the fragrance will be amazing. I have used India Gate Basmati Rice to make this Cabbage rice.
To get Perfect purple Colour to use the fresh red cabbage, if not you can use normal cabbage.
After the rice is cooked, let it rest for at least 5 minutes before fluffing it with a fork. It will make sure the grains do not break while fluffing it.
Ghee adds a very delicious flavor to the rice, so do not skip it.
To make a variation of this cabbage rice recipe, you can add grated beetroot. It will impart a very different flavor to the rice.
