Appa is also called Pathiri in Malabar cooking. These are essentially thin rice rotis served hot. Brown rice is high in fiber, acts as an anti-oxidant and has a low glycemic index. It helps in preventing diabetes, weight loss, heart disease and lowers cholesterol due to its high fiber content. Flaxseed helps slow down glucose metabolism and lower cholesterol levels. The omega-3 fatty acids in this superfood also reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure. It is a good option for adults as well as children.
