Oats are rich in a specific type of fiber called beta-glucan which is known to help lower levels of bad cholesterol. Yoghurt provides a dose of animal protein, plus several other nutrients found in dairy foods, like calcium, vitamin B-2, vitamin B-12, potassium, and magnesium. Urad dal is also good for women as it has iron, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, potassium which makes it a healthy pulse.
