This post is one such alternative. Few months ago I came across this new "rice" that's made using lentils, peas and a small amount of rice.
On its own, it tasted bland, slightly salty and more like chickpea flour to us. It has grainy texture and feels slightly heavier than rice and is far quicker to cook. I started using it as an accompaniment to spicy stews and in pilafs to favorable results. This pulao is one such dish we enjoy using this "rice". There are multiple flavors available
but I am yet to try others except the "Original" version. While its not carb free
, its definitely lesser carbs than white rice along with providing enhanced protein and fibre thanks to the lentils. Here's a simple recipe.
