Cabbage Rice With Coconut Milk


( Click image for enlarged view )


I had this rice when I was with my SIL. I love the flavor of this rice so much that I tried it again when I came back to my place. This rice has got a creamy texture as it is simmered in coconut milk and it has a mild sweet taste and pleasant aroma with a little crunch of cabbage. It is a great supplement when we have a spicy menu on the platter.

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups rice
  • 1.5 cup chopped cabbage
  • 1/2 cup diced potato
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup thick coconut milk
  • 2 green chillies
  • 1 tbsp garlic ginger paste(4 cloves garlic ,1/2" ginger)
  • 2 springs chopped mint leaves
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 cardamom
  • 2 cloves
  • 1/2" cinnamon stick
  • 6 whole black peppers
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tbsp butter/oil for vegans
  • salt to taste
