Nutritional values

This dish is rich in niacin as well as vitamin C, which is involved in protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism, contributes to energy production and plays a role in enzymatic processes. It is important for the regeneration of the skin, muscles, nerves and DNA.

If you use whole-grain basmati rice (which needs to be cooked for 10 minutes longer), you'll increase your fiber intake and add extra vitamins!
