Moong - Bansi Rawa Dosa / Diet Friendly Recipes

Breakfast is one of the most important meal of the day and I am sure that, this is an universal fact which is familiar to everyone. But there are people who thinks that brunch is an alternative way for dieting so that they don't feel like over eating. Actually No! From my past experience, I strongly believe that skipping breakfast makes a person fat. So breakfast should be healthy and filling which gives energy to start a day.

Today's recipe is all about a healthy and easy dosa which is prepared using Moong and Bansi rawa. Same recipe can also be prepared using green moong dal. Bansi rawa is a fine rawa which is used for weight loss and diabetics. A year back, happened to see this nutritious rawa in a super market and I asked the sales girl regarding this. She said that, this is generally used for diabetic people and I purchased one packet to give it to my mom. After coming home, in full curiosity tried Rawa upma using bansi and to my surprise, it tasted very delicious than the regular wheat rawa. Yeah! I am not a big fan of wheat rawa ;)

Then, googled to know the difference between bansi and wheat but could not get the exact details but the benefits mentioned for bansi sounds healthy. From that day, my monthly grocery list includes Bansi rawa and I had tried so many recipes using this healthy ones. In my personal comparison, the texture and taste varies from the regular wheat. I am really shocked to notice that I had never included bansi recipes on my blog... Yes ! your guess is right ;) More Bansi rawa recipes in the draft.... Stay tuned and Stay healthy !
