Pulao and Biryani are traditionally royal foods made using lots of oil, ghee, dry fruits, rich gravies, cream, coconut, curds, Paneer etc. Even simple delicacies like khichdi, though cooked in very little oil/ ghee are served with ghee poured over them! We have modified traditional recipes to a zero-oil form as well as developed a few new recipes to suit the Indian palate.

But it is no easy task either! Cooking with zero oil doesn’t mean only elimination fat, it also involves careful selection of ingredients (like Brown rice or bulgur wheat instead of white rice), tweaking the proportions accordingly and using appropriate cooking methods too!
