Are you looking for something a bit adventurous but easy to make? Then you should try this egg pulao. Pulao is what you call pilaf on the Indian subcontinent. There are tons of pulao variations you can try, and they are all pretty much delicious. True pulao is made by cooking the rice inside stock with spices before being mixed with other ingredients. The individual grains of rice need to stay separated. Don’t be overwhelmed by the logistics though. It is super simple to cook.
There really is nothing better than a good pulao or pilaf. Whatever you choose to call it, it doesn’t change that it is a healthy dish, especially when its primary ingredient is eggs. Eggs are protein powerhouses, and protein is a very important nutrient for your body. It helps you to build muscle and even lose weight by boosting your metabolism. It also helps to lower your “bad” LDL cholesterol and increases your good HDL cholesterol.
