Health Benefits of Vegetable Biryani

Health Benefits of Vegetable Biryani.

As our mom said when we were kids, eating vegetables will make us stronger, help us live longer, and give us the energy to tackle every problem of our lives. Still, we were resistant and always chose fast foods like pizza or noodles over healthy homemade dishes. As we all know that moms are always right. Vegetables provide us every nutrient our body needs that those junk foods can never.

When the nutritional case of Vegetables meets with the exotic Indian spices and flavors can lure even kids into eating vegetables. Vegetable Biryani does the job for us. It offers the finger-licking taste of original Indie seasonings cooking in an ethnic blend to provide the perfect texture and the nutritional benefits of a completely balanced diet. 

Let me tell you, in India; you can find numerous versions of the same Vegetable Biryani in different states that are impossible to taste in one lifetime. The most popular ones are Hyderabadi Biryani and Lucknowi Biryani.

Let’s talk more deeply about the health benefits of Vegetable Biryani:

Mixed Veggies and the Nutrients:

One thing to know about Vegetable Biryani is that you can add as many vegetables as you can, and it’ll still be excellent, delicious, and healthy. Veggies like cauliflower, cabbage, carrots, beans, and more are added to this Biryani. They not only increase the nutritional value of the dish but also make room for experimentation and new recipes that kids and adults adore. These vegetable help in weight loss, are low in carbs and improve metabolism. The fiber helps in proper digestive health. This dish is a lifesaver for diabetics and heart patients as they have limited options on their menu.

Tomatoes do their magic:

Tomatoes are known for their abundant amount of antioxidants that help maintain heart health. They are also rich in Vitamin C because of the citric juices present in them. Tomatoes are also loaded with an enzyme called lycopene which protects them from harmful UV rays. In a similar way, tomatoes will help protect your skin from external damage. You might be shocked to listen, but tomatoes are also good for your eyes ad they shield them from blue light coming from digital screens.

Vegetable Biryani is incomplete without tomatoes; it gives the dish its essence. So next time when you think about setting tomatoes aside on your plate, remember the points mentioned above.

Don’t underestimate Rice.

Along with vegetables, Biryani has one more main ingredient, i.e., Rice. There is no such thing as Biryani without Rice. Without Rice, Biryani is like an ocean without water. Rice is a rich item for carbohydrates that supplies more than 50% of the energy in our body. They also contain high fiber and proteins that facilitate growth in toddlers and reduces the risk of constipation. Rice is an excellent choice for those who have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity because it is naturally gluten-free. Rice plays a vital role in every Indian kitchen, especially the southern part. 

Don’t Forget the Minerals.

Your body needs minerals. They are of two types, micro, and macro. The ones that your body needs are macro; Macrominerals include calcium, phosphorus, sodium, magnesium. It’s not that your body doesn’t need microminerals but only in small quantities, including iron, copper manganese, and more. 

The spices of Vegetable Biryani not only bless your taste buds but also possess different minerals that are essential for your body, especially sodium.
