Rice is one of the most versatile food. Available in almost everywhere on the earth. It is not just very light for digestion but very good source of vitamin B1 – Thiamine too. We have so many misconception prevailing about rice. Be it for Diabetes or for weight gain. Culprit is us for over processing the rice and/or consume it at wrong times. Rice while extra polished to make it whiter and shinier will definitely lost its nutrients and fiber, plus while cooking we wash it 4-5 times and discard the water in which they are cooked leaving the rice with almost no nutrient. The best way to have it is – have the single polished or hand polished rice and along with vegetables, this will not only give satiety but also nutrition. You can use your left over rice to make very delicious medium spicy dish and that too very quick.
