Nutritional values

Once again the Asian cuisine shows a lot of lightness with a lush taste. In terms of health-relevant ingredients, the easy-to-prepare creation is also well ahead. 180 percent of the daily niacin requirement alone ends up on the plate. Among other things, the B vitamin ensures good nerves and an intact metabolism.

Rice is suitable as a satiating side dish. Tradition-conscious people take basmati rice, health-oriented connoisseurs prefer whole grain long grain rice because of its better vitamin and mineral values.
