You can easily make your rice healthier and satiating by replacing it with other cereals like bulgur wheat, bajra, jowar and even red rice. Adding these ingredients to make simple red rice with garlic will add a little more fibre to your meal than white polished rice. The reason is the presence of the bran which remains intact in it, which otherwise is removed while making white rice.

While the red rice does have almost equal amounts of carbs as white rice, red rice benefits are more. It has antioxidants anthocyanin and quercetin which helps to fight inflammation and free radicals in the body. This in turn helps to maintain the health of alloragns of the body. Thus the presence of fibre and antioxidants makes red rice a better choice for weight-watchers and heart patients.

For diabetics, we would yet recommend to consider having this cooked red rice if the carbs in it have been considered as a part of your daily meal and well balanced with other fibre rich ingredients by your dietitian.
