RM#2 Day 12 - Carrot Bulgur Khichidi

Bulgur has the highest protein value of any of the cereals, however, it is not a complete protein. Wheat makes a good contribution of some of the B vitamins and trace minerals (iron and zinc) as well. If you have never used bulgur before, you are missing a treat. It is a delicious form of whole wheat that has been ground and pre-cooked, which makes it a snap to prepare. Being a rich source of folic acid and fiber, bulgur is a favorite grain that aids in the prevention of heart disease. It is pre-cooked and in some recipes requires only hot water or broth for preparation. I prepared this khichidi for sterday's dinner, they were simply easy n delicious to prepare, coconut chutney goes awesome as side for this healthy n colourful bulgur khichidi...



1cup Bulgur
1/4cup Carrot chopped
1/4cup Moongdal
1no Onion chopped
1no Tomato chopped
2nos Green chillies slit opened
1tbsp Ginger crushed
5nos Garlic sliced
2nos Bay leaves, cinnamon sticks, cloves,star anise
1/2tsp Turmeric powder
