Fruit & Nut Purple Rice

The minute I saw the Nutty Masala Rice at Krithi's kitchen, I wanted to give it a try for sure. The next morning I ended up with some left over rice and last quarter of red cabbage (after making those Red Cabbage Sweet Potato Bullets) that gives me an opportunity to try this one. I have added some dry fruits and some more nuts to the base recipe, and the red cabbage gave the nice purple color, that's how i ended up with this Fruit and Nut Purple Rice. Here is the recipe and Enjoy!
