Moongil Arisi Kadhamba Saadham/Mixed Dal Bamboo Rice

Bamboo Rice aka Moongil Arisi, is a super healthy food, i grabbed this rice during my last India trip from an Organic store. Seriously i want to prepare some delicious dishes with this incredible ingredient since a while and finally i got a chance to prepare an extremely delicious dish. This rice can be cooked and consumed just like our regular rice.Bamboo rice has a nice chewy taste and its very similar to unpolished rice. Trust me this rice tastes delicious when served along with our popular Indian curries. This rice is extremely rich in proteins than the rice and wheat. It lowers cholesterol leves and good source of vitamin B6. This rice controls joints pain, back pain and rheumatic pain.

Moongil Kadhamba Saadham, Sambhar Bamboo Rice

My first trial with bamboo rice is this lipsmacking mixed dal bamboo rice loaded with vegetables. Since am trying my hands with bamboo rice for the first time, i dont want to make something special than trying a healthy dal rice. Easy to make, this delicious protein rich rice will definitely fill some hungry tummy easily. This chewy rice tastes fabulous as Kadhamba rice, and planning to make few more healthy dishes with this fantastic bamboo rice. Am running this week's blogging marathon with Vegetarian dinner ideas as theme, obviously this lipsmacking comforting food is going for this week's theme.
