Benefits of Ayurvedic Plain Rice
Rice is full of nutrition and in India it is regarded as the foundation of all nourishment. Basmati rice which is the main ingredient of this recipe fills various roles in Ayurvedic nutrition. Basmati rice is lighter and easy to digest. It is very high in prana and helps to build body tissue. Basmati rice’s rasa (quality of taste) is sweet and offers contentment. As the body digests it, its virya (energetic impact on the digestive fire) is cooling. Finally, its vipaka which means post-digestion effect provides a sense of comfort.
Other ingredients used in this dish are equally beneficial for health. Ghee is enriched with vitamins A, D, E, and K. It stimulates the digestive system. And cumin seeds are an excellent source of iron which is an integral component of haemoglobin.
