Hi anuty !! We know you daughter is an amazing blogger..Plz tell something interesting about you ?? 

 I am Suriya. Mom of two beautiful daughters and my elder daughter is known to you all as a blogger, +Sangeetha M  of Spicy treats. I came to know about Manjula's event through my daughter sangeetha. When she told me about this event i was more interested to share my recipes. I don't know more varieties and multi cuisine recipes like my daughter. Here i want to share one quick, easy and healthy rice recipe, Minty Cabbage Rice which is perfect for your lunch box with some papad or chips or vegetable stir fry.

ME : So kind of you anuty thank you :)

So now lets move on to the cooking tip and the recipe which suriya anuty has got for us today :)

Cooking tips:

Try using the used lemon/lime peel to wipe your kitchen sink to remove the grease or oily tint. lemon is a natural disinfectant and also it leaves nice pleasant smell too.


Minty Cabbage rice, very flavorful and quick recipe. Cabbage is rich in fiber content and it helps to reduce the body fat and by means its helps to reduce blood glucose level also. Being a diabetic patient i used to include all fiber rich vegetables n whole grains in my diet regularly. This cabbage is one constant veg which we include it regularly atleast twice in a week in any form. This time for a change i made this rice for Manjula's Event.
