Cabbage Egg Rice

I don't like repeating lunch box menus for atleast 2-3 weeks to keep things interesting and especially to keep my kids interested in the lunch box! So I end up making different kinds of variety rice. 
One such day I made this cabbage egg rice. I usually make cabbage egg poriyal as a side dish for rice, I simply added some rice to the poriyal and made this for my kids lunch box.
You can add some peanuts for crunch.
