Purple cabbage with spring onions stir fry

A long time back I got an email from Torview, check out her blog for some awesome recipes!. It mentioned an event with the color purple. It haunted me for a few days.. What could I make that's purple? I didn't think beets would give the right color, and brinjals were out of question, because Niket is allergic to them. I went to Namdhari's and saw purple cabbage selling for Rs 2 per kg, and I got mine for 80 paise! (Someday I will tell my daughter that!) I got some fresh spring onions too. And this dish was a pleasure to cook (in minutes) and tasty to eat- Food Palette, here comes my dish for the event.

Purple cabbage, chopped- 2 cups
Spring onions chopped - 1 cup
Olive oil for cooking (can use any oil)
Salt to taste
1 chopped tomato
I added a pinch of turmeric, for its antiseptic properties. You can skip it altogether)
Wash and clean the spring onions and the cabbage. I usually wash them before chopping. 
Heat oil in a wok, add the chopped veggies, add salt and turmeric. Cook covered for 5-10 mins till they are done and the cabbage retains its crunch.
Can garnish with grated coconut or cilantro. I hate both, and I just used some lemon juice.
Serve with rice- dal or as a side dish to any meal.
