First off, this sounds amazing! The health benefits of Bulgar are good as well. If you cannot have wheat, substitute a whole grain of your choosing. I believe quinoa would work nicely. A word of caution though. The aroma of these spices will increase the traffic flow in your kitchen. Have the first person that walks in to see what is cooking, set the the table while you smile. Thank you Chitra for this healthy addition.
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.
