Other day I was reading an article on CNN that had a list of some super foods that are good for you.
The list consisted of Cabbage, Tofu, Black Beans, Cinnamon, Tomato, Blueberries, Salmon, Cocoa, Basil, Yogurt.
Here is link to the article.While I was reading that, I thought most of them we use on a day to day basis in our Indian cooking.
I don't usually come up with a menu for my meals before hand. I open my fridge stare at the veggies for a while and come up with something. It was lunch time and as always I was staring at the fridge and suddenly remembered this article I read in the morning. Then I was like why not combine all the foods that I have and those I can, mentioned in the article and make a single dish and came up with this cabbage tofu rice.
I covered cabbage, tofu, tomatoes, cinnamon in the fired rice, and yogurt I used for the raitha.
Could not incorporate blue berries and cocoa.
Could have combined salmon, basil and balck beans too into the fried rice, but I did not have them readily available.
Long grain white rice/Basmati Rice(cooked): 2 cups.
Shredded cabbage: 1 cup.
