Health benifit Soy Nugget Rice Pulao :

  • High Protein Soya Chunks
  • Low in calorie
  • Rich in protein
  • Good for all ages

In today’s world health is given the foremost priority….so I use “Saffola Arise” . However it depends on individual’s choice…..consider it one of the types of rice.

Lets sneak peek the benefits Saffola Arise:

  • One feels light post consumption
  • Gives sustained energy for longer period
  • When cooked, grains expand; so lesser quantity of the same is needed.

Preparation time: 10mins (20-30 mins more if you are using saffola arise rice)

Cooking: 15 mins

Grounding of vegetables & Soy nuggets:

Boil the chunks for 3 mins; wash them in the running water and keep a side for water to drain;

Heat tea spoon oil (refined / olive) in a griddle (preferably non stick); put in all the raw garam masala & heat it for few seconds (on high gas).

Add the sliced onions; sauté the same till it turns light brown(on medium gas); adjoin capsicums, all powdered masala & stir the same till all the ingredients are medium fried and than add the soy nuggets. Mix well the vegetables & fry till it turns brown. Post frying mix the vegetables with cooked rice.
