Let us admit it. Most of us eat white rice more than any other food even though we know that brown rice is healthier. When we are not able to stay away from it why not try a different method to cook it so that it becomes a healthy option?

Well, rice gives you energy if it is properly utilised by your body. But if it isn’t properly burnt, then you may end up putting on weight very fast. Let us quickly look at what it contains. Rice is 90% carb, 2% fat and 8% of protein. And then it also has niacin, thiamine, folic acid, iron, selenium, manganese, phosphorous and magnesium too. Rice contains both digestible starch and resistant starch. If you cook it the right way, you can prevent putting on weight after eating white rice. How to cook: Get a mud pot and boil two glasses of water. When the water is hot, add 2 and a half spoons of coconut oil. After a minute, add a glass of raw white rice to the boiling water. Now, reduce the flame and slow cook the rice for 30 minutes. Once it is cool, place it in the fridge for 12 hours. Eat the rice after that.

Many sources say that the oil in the rice can transform the digestible starch into what is known as resistant starch and this will help you prevent the weight gains. Now, let us know about the other benefits of rice in general.
