Zaffrani nuts and berry pulao






I present my third recipe adhering with the rules of the healthy food community and making it kids centric.
I made zaffrani nuts and berry pulao using my third ingredient saffron.
Saffron is the most expensive ingredient. Usually used in dessert,  biryani pulao, and mugai dishes.
It has many beneficial properties. It prevents hair loss and support respiratory health.
It is rich in potassium a key element in maintaining a healthy heart.
I have used brown rice which is unrefined and unpolished whole grain.
It is rich in essential minerals like magnesium,  iron, zinc, calcium etc . Ut prevents to diabetes.
