What is Fried RIce? What is Biryani?

To explain it in a simple way, Fried rice is a dish where cooked rice is stir fried with vegetables. Biryani is fully flavoured and seasoned rice cooked with vegetables or meat. Now am in between these two to name this recipe biryani or a fried rice. As i have stir fried the cooked rice with vegetables. Also have cooked the rice with spices to a flavour packed rice as like in dum biryani style.

Also there is a long time doubt for me why do they call this vegetable as red cabbage when its so temptingly coloured purple???. Pls. let me know if you are aware of the answer for my question.
