THE CRISPY PULAO BALLS WITH STRAWBERRY CHUTNEY

How can leftover Pulav and veggies be used to win your kids’ hearts? It might sound like a riddle to you, but it is possible as you will see from this recipe. Cooked pulao and colourful vegetables are used to make a mildly spiced dough that is shaped into balls and deep-fried.
Broccoli, as we all know, is very healthy food. It is very low in Saturated Fat and Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Protein, Vitamin E & calcium. So we must add such healthy food to our diet.
This is a wonderful way to include veggies like broccoli into your kids’ diet, and an intelligent alternative to store-bought fries, chips and cheese balls.
The Crispy Pulao Balls are really so crunchy outside and soft inside that your kids will love it!

I really like this kind of recipes where we can create a new dish out of some leftover dish. And if the taste of a new dish is so amazing then what is left to complain

NOTES:
  •  Leftover pulav had potato, carrot, and peas. that is why I have not added them separately. If you are making these balls with plain rice feel free to add as many vegetables as you like. your kids will still devour these rice balls.
