Bulgur cumin pulao (Low Cal)


Jeera rice

About:
Jeera pulao is basically rice flavoured with cumin and lightly spiced with whole garam masala.
Just to make it healthy I used bulgur wheat instead of rice and spiced up with green chilli and pepper as a variation. Jeera pulao perfectly complements a well made dal or a vegetable curry.

Health benefits of Bulgur:
Bulgur is what’s left after wheat kernels have been steamed, dried, and crushed. Bulgur makes a healthy and quick addition to any meal because it’s 100 percent whole wheat that’s specially prepared to decrease cooking time. It’s a good source of fiber, protein, iron and vitamin B-6. One thing to keep in mind, a cup of bulgur has fewer calories, less fat, and more than twice the fiber of brown rice.

Serves: 2
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Preparation time: 15 minutes
