Heat a little butter or oil in a sauté pan. When hot add the cabbage. Toss. Season with salt and a little pepper. Add a little more butter if using. Lid. Cook over medium/ medium low 3-5 minutes until the cabbage has wilted a little and become tender, adding a very little splash of water if necessary.
Heat oil and or butter in another saute pan. When hot add the rice mixture. Toss. Add more butter or oil to dress rice and chick peas well the if you like. Allow to heat through, brown very lightly and become fragrant. Serve when hot.
Paneer: Cut the block of paneer into cubes approximately 3/4" square. Heat a lkittle oil in a nonstick or well seasoned pan. When hot, add the cubes. Brown on at least 2 sides ( more is better). About 1 minute per side. You can turn them easily with a fork, tongs, or just by tossing them in the pan. When browned, add the sauce and simmer together about 3 minutes. Add a little water if necessary and check the seasoning. Serve hot.
Meatballs: Heat the sauce in a sauce pan- ideally one that can accommodate the meatballs all in one layer. Thin with a little water if needed. Check the seasoning then add the meatballs carefully, seating them down in the sauce. Allow them to simmer gently in the sauce, perhaps with a lid on the pan, over medium/ medium low 7-10 minutes to heat through. Serve.
