Rice is a huge part of our Indian diets and rightfully so! Rice is very economic and widely available. Cooked in the right way to get perfect textured soft rice delicacy, it can easily fit into a senior citizen’s meal. It can be combined with various vegetables such tomatoes, onions, carrot, cabbage, green peas and the list can go on and on. Adding vegetables increases the nutritional value and lowers GI of rice which means that you can stay fuller for longer without spikes in your blood sugar levels.

Below are a few nutritional tips to help include rice in your diet in versatile ways.

Rice is one of the most versatile foods as it can be prepared in the form khichdis, dosas, appe, pulao's, biryani's etc. Try our Bohri Khichdi and Lemon Rice Recipe which are easy comfort food recipes that can be prepared in no time.
· Try including brown rice in your diet instead of white rice as it is less processed and includes the bran which is rich in fiber and minerals such as potassium, magnesium and phosphorus. Brown rice also has a lower glycemic index which means that it is broken down slowly by the body and causes a slow rise in blood sugar which can help diabetic patients. If your looking for healthy brown rice options, try Fenugreek and Mushroom Brown Rice. Sprouts Pulao
Adding milk products like milk, paneer and curd to rice makes for a calcium rich meal. Try Curd Rice
Adding fresh herbs and greens to rice makes them more exciting and flavourful. Try Tomato Methi Rice for that extra punch of flavour.
