A spicy rice delicacy, which makes a perfect main course on days when you find yourself a bit too busy to cook anything elaborate.
All you have to do is temper the brown rice and sprouts with just a spoonful of oil, and let them pressure cook together while you complete other chores.
The whole spices give this Spicy Sprouts Pulao a fantastic aroma and flavour, which makes it unnecessary to prepare an elaborate accompaniment.
Just a cup of chilled, low-fat raita is enough to round off this tasty one-pot meal. Moreover, sprouts are easier to digest and give you abundant calcium, iron and fibre, making this a really wholesome meal too.
