Indians love to eat rice at every meal of the day, especially people from the southern and eastern states. But why Indians eat so much rice? Is it healthy? In most of the Asian countries, rice is the primary food of the diet. In India, rice is a staple harvested grain.
Rice eating benefits:
Rice is the powerhouse of carbohydrates, calories, and other nutrients. Carbohydrate boosts our energy level. Eating rice with some fibers like vegetables and pulses is very nutritious. Rice is the source of various minerals like calcium and iron. It is also rich in vitamins, thiamine, fiber, and riboflavin. It’s naturally nutritious.
People suffering from stomach ailments can consider eating rice. The fiber in it defeats any stomach issues and deals with constipation as well. It’s light and easy to digest and doesn’t feel harsh in the stomach.
Furthermore, some calls rice an unhealthy grain. But it’s not. When rice is polished in the factory, the nutrients and fiber wash away. The rice directly coming from farmers are not polished and loaded with nutrition values.
Just have some amount of rice (as per the calories your body needs), add some tasty pulse/beans, and mix up with colorful veggies. It’s very comforting food. Every Indian goes crazy over the simple Indian delicacy daal-chawal or rajma-chawal.
