Diet Biriyani (Wheat Rava/ Cracked wheat)


Everybody dreams to maintain their shape and to be healthy too. Health and beauty are not two seperate entities at all. They go hand in hand. Being healthy is being beautiful.

I present to you a lovely diet that keeps you healthy and also tickles your tongue. :)

Wheat contains fiber and proteins that can keep you fit always. And now adding vegetables to it!!! Do I have to justify more.. :) :)


Ingredients:

Wheat rava - 1 cup
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Green chillies - 3

Mixed vegetables (carrot, beetroot, beans, potato, peas etc) - 1 cup
Water - 3 cups
Bay leaf - small piece
Biriyani masala - 1 tbsp (I used Everest masala)
Cinnamon (pattai) - small piece

Aniseed (sombu) - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste





Method:

Take a pan and add few spoons of oil and crackle aniseeds, cinnamon and ginger garlic paste. Now add the diced vegetables, chilly, bay leaf and a little salt. sprinkle some water and let the vegetables get cooked. Once done add 3 cups of water to the pan.Now add the briyani masala with adequate salt into the water. When it starts boiling pour in the wheat rava and keep stirring to avoid lumps. Once it gets cooked and becomes thick, simmer the stove and allow it to cook for 5 min. Wheat rava biriyani is done. :)

Serve it hot with raitha of your choice. :) Happy dieting :)




And now its time to thank my blogger friend Jennifer Kumar for featuring my blog in her website Alaivani.com and in her blog shakahaari. Thanks a lot for your interest in my dishes. It makes me feel really honored and happy. :)
