Pulao is a common Indian rice dish that is a complete meal in itself. It’s a one-pot dish that is made with fragrant rice (preferably Basmati rice) and aromatic spices and herbs. It is sometimes made with vegetable stock or broth and chicken or mutton stock if it’s non-vegetarian. Pulao can be churned into different forms and experimented with all kinds of vegetables, meats and herbs. To bring out the deep-seated flavours of the ingredients, it is sometimes slow-cooked for a longer time to absorb all the flavours. This otherwise great dish may be avoided by health buffs as it is made of rice, which is not really considered good for those counting their calories.
Here is an amazing way you can relish the delectable taste of pulao without worrying about calories. Jowar pulao replaces rice with jowar (sorghum). Jowar comes loaded with nutrients like potassium and phosphorous. Jowar is also fibre-dense that eases the digestion system and further leads to weight loss.
