What makes it healthy –
As I mentioned earlier, I am totally a rice person and I love to include rice in at least one of my meals in a day. Also, I am very health freak and I follow renowned dietician Rujuta Diwekar. I was happy when I got to know that she recommends dal chawal for dinner. Rice is healthy in many ways. Its light and easy to digest. It is very less in fat and is a good source of manganese, phosphorous, folic acid and iron. Other than rice I also prefer making other rice dishes like Matar Pulao with Spinach, Tomato Rice, Vegetable Rice, Garlice rice, you can pair it with different curd variants like Cucumber Raita, Italina flavoured vegetable Raita
Lemon is rich in vitamin C.
