Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Millet Pongal is a traditional south Indian recipe. Moong dal is a good source of protein and other nutrients. Compared to simply white rice, not only brown rice's fiber content high but also is low in glycemic index, reducing the blood sugar levels to rise. This millet, which is rich in calcium, helps in keeping your bones and teeth healthy.
