Is Maharashtrain Amboli healthy?

There is confusing on whether a paratha is healthy or should i have a tasty Amboli.

Lets see what the Amboli made of. The key ingredient is rice flour or chawal ka atta. Rice flour is made from rice which is a  refined food and hence a simple carb. 

Rice flour (chawal ka atta) Rice flour is high in carbohydrates, not a good source of protein. Since it is made from polished rice it has no vitamins and minerals. Consumption of rice flour can cause inflammtion in your body and not good for heart patients and diabetics.

Who is this uneducated, horrid nutritionist who is devaluating such a rich food source, based on their half-assed knowledge of food, health or any inkling of science? Amboli peeth is made out of mix of 4-5 different grains (rice, poha, urad dal) with methi seeds and is one of the best alternatives to rotis/parathas, giving you diversity in your gut, and providing essential carbs and fats.

Tarla Dalal    Dear Dr. Naina This recipe of Amboli is made with rice flour and hence suggested as not the most healthiest option as it is full of carbs. The recipe mentioned by you which makes use of whole rice with urad dal, poha and methi seeds and set aside to ferment is definitely a healthier option than this recipe.
