Bulgur (which is often referred to as broken wheat or dalia) is the healthiest form of wheat available. The most important nutrient retained by this cereal form is fibre, that makes it a low glycemic index food and helps to prevent a quick rise in blood sugar levels. In contrast, wheat products like rava, maida and pasta lose many of their nutrients as a result of processing and refining. You can also make other nourishing dishes like khichdi and pulao using bulgur wheat.

Packed with protein, calcium, vitamin C, vitamin A, iron and fibre, this salad is spiked up with a lot of mediterranean flavours like olive oil, oranges and parsley. Lemon juice and spring onions which will not fail to perk up your spirits. Allow the salad to rest a while after you toss it so that all the flavours mellow and blend yielding into a harmonious flavour.
