Rice is not only versatile and easy to cook—but also light on the stomach. No surprise then that this grain has been an integral part of the Indian diet since forever. That said, rice has always been surrounded by this misconception that it can make you fat. And for the longest time, it has been depicted in a bad light. But is it really that bad for you?
The answer is NO! While rice is a source of carbohydrates, it also has 4 to 5 grams of protein in one serving and almost no fat. Other than that, it is also a good source of vitamin B and antioxidants.
