Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Brown rice is the "unrefined" version of white rice. The side hulls and brans provide "natural wholeness" to the grain and are rich in proteins, thiamine, calcium, magnesium, fiber, and potassium. For those trying to lose weight or those suffering from diabetes, brown rice can prove a healthful staple given its low glycemic rating which helps reduce insulin spikes. Mung daal is a good source of protein, which makes this dish a perfect cereal pulse combination.
