Purple Cabbage Rice | கோஸ் சாதம் | Cabbage Rice

Purple Cabbage Rice is a simple variety-rice which is a quick fix for lunch box. It surely is an unique recipe which can be prepared simple, when you feel lazy to cook an elaborate meal. I usually buy this purple cabbage for salads as it makes it colorful. But this time I tried it an Indian recipe and it tasted delicious. While cooking this cabbage the color goes to light purplish and it fades more as it rests.
