BROWN AVAL(POHA/FLATTENED RICE) UPPAMA

Its a Healthy Tiffin that can be made in just 5-10 minutes. Before going to the recipe let me first give a small news about the brown rice.Normally in India we do not use brown rice  for cooking.Its considered as poor man's Diet.Anyways... As far a the calorie and carb is concerned its the same as white rice but the only advantage that brown rice has is because of its processing,. meaning only outer husk is removed and not the next layers that's bran and germ , which contain several vitamins like B1, B3 and minerals like iron and magnesium.The barn part of the rice helps reduce LDL.

So having seen the goodness of brown rice lets come to Flattened rice.. Normally its said that flattened rice is easy to digest.and for me its easy to cook hehehe :D

Flattened rice/Poha/Aval -1 cup
