Lemon Rice Sevai/Rice Noodles

Rice is a great source of complex carbohydrates, which is an important source of the fuel our bodies need.Carbohydrates are broken down to glucose, most of which is used as energy for exercise and as essential fuel for the brain..Rice is healthful for what it does not contain. Rice has no fat, no cholesterol and is sodium free. Rice is an excellent food to include in a balanced diet.

A good source of vitamins and minerals such as thiamine, niacin, iron, riboflavin, vitamin D, calcium, and fiber.Low in sugar.. Rice is gluten free. All rice is gluten free, making rice the essential choice for people with gluten free dietary requirements. Rice contains no additives or preservatives, making it an excellent inclusion in a healthy and balanced diet. Rice also contains resistant starch, which is the starch that reaches the bowel undigested. This encourages the growth of beneficial bacteria, keeping the bowel healthy..Rice is a low-sodium food for those with hypertension.While lemon contains flavonoid a compound that contains antioxidant and anti-cancer properties.The high vitamin C content of the lemon has been used for hundreds of years to ward off scurvy among sailors and travelers. There is little sodium, so the fruit is good as a flavoring for those on a low salt diet.I prepared a day back rice noodles at home, i finished some left over rice sevais as lemon rice sevai with simple tempered spices and fresh lemon juice, everyone at home like this simple lemon rice sevai especially my little one..
