We all are aware of the health benefits and nutrient values of vegetables.  It is believed that cabbage has a compound which blocks the growth of cancer cells.  Here is a simple, less spicy fried rice with cabbage.

Biryani Masala or any other spice mix - 1/8 tsp

1. Wash rice 3 - 4 times in water and cook with 1 1/2 cup water.  Save the cooked rice for later.  You can use leftover rice as well.
2. Chop cabbage (long thin slices), spring onions, garlic and cilantro leaves. Slit the green chillies lengthwise. 
3. Heat about 2 tbsp oil in a pan.  Add cumin seeds and finely chopped garlic.  Saute for a minute and add chopped cabbage, spring onions and green chillies.  Saute till cabbage starts wilting.  Add turmeric, black pepper powder, cashews, biryani masala, salt and saute for a few minutes.
4. Lastly add cooked rice, chopped cilantro. Saute for about 5 minutes at low flame till all the ingredients are mixed well.
