Cabbage and Carrot Fry - Simple Vegetarian stir fry for rice or Roti

I wanted to try something simple to go with my meal for lunch. I had some cabbage left over. I remember that in my college days hostel menu they serve cabbage and carrot stir fry. I love the combo. I decided to try out simple but bit spicy Cabbage and carrot stir fry. This can go well with any variety rice like Lemon, tomato, curd or any podi rice. It can go well with sambar rice too.
Cabbage - 1.5 cup (chopped or grated thinly)
Carrot - 2.5 cups (chopped finely)

Turmeric powder - 1/4 teaspoon
