Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Brown rice khichdi, being a great staple carbohydrate source contains an array of essential nutrients such as B vitamins, phosphorus, selenium, magnesium, etc. Compared to simply white rice, not only is its fiber content high, but also in low in glycemic index, reducing the blood sugar levels to rise. This also contributes to keeping you fuller for longer and less likely to need snacks or overeat. Besides containing just the calorie secrets coming from brown rice, the presence of the two herbs ginger and garlic adds more on the flavor besides its medicinal properties. Also, adding more to its protein content is the split green dal making it a perfect cereal-pulse combination recipe.
