Prawns Pulao

()

I am a chicken lover, a die hard chicken lover! Hence, i can proudly say that i have various types of chicken biryani’s and pulao’s at a restaurant or even at home.

However, one fine day, I was lazing around at my grandmother’s place and as all grandmothers are excited when their grandson or granddaughter arrives, she wanted to feed me something special yet simple. And that is how this recipe of Prawns Pulao was introduced to me.

Did You Know ?

1.Prawns Pulao is good for heart

A person with a healthy heart is actually a happy person. Prawn, like most seafood, is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids prevent the heart from suffering from various diseases as well as improve cardiovascular circulation. Thus regular consumption of Prawn is quite beneficial for healthy Heart.

2.Helps build muscles

This is the most important point for me ! Body needs protein to build muscles. Prawns consist of adequate amounts of protein. The good thing about prawns being sources of protein is that they are low in carbs unlike other protein sources. There is 17.0 g worth of protein for every 100g of prawn. So consume prawn frequently to get well-toned muscle.

One hundred grams of raw prawns, which are equal to about four to five medium to large peeled prawns, contain several vitamins:

  • 4 to 5 percent of your recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for thiamin (vitamin B1)
  • 47 percent of your RDA for vitamin B12
  • 71 to 95 percent of your RDA for vitamin E, depending on whether you’re a man or woman
