Cabbage Pakoda Fried Rice

For the final day of BM#66 Bookmarked Recipes, I have a different Rice dish made with Cabbage Pakodas. We mostly end up stocking cabbage all the time and it mostly gets done as a kootu or a poriyal during the week. However this one particular time we were not happy with the same dishes and thought we should make something different. That's when Amma suggested she will want this Cabbage Pakoda Fried Rice that she had noted it down.

This is a great way to rustle up a quick rice and quite easy to make as well. While I remember the famous gobi fried rice that we used to eat when we go to Tirumala, I never thought of a cabbage pakoda. So it is wonderful when your dish turns out good as well.
