1 REVIEW ALL GOOD



A nutritious khichdi made with bulgur wheat, yellow moong dal, vegetables and spices. You will relish this concoction from the second trimester onwards as your appetite will slowly begin to increase and you will also crave to eat tasty food, unlike the first trimester where only mildly flavoured dishes interested you. Bulgur wheat in combination with moong dal and vegetables make this dish rich in carbohydrates, vitamin c, iron and fibre.

Bulgur wheat has a low glycemic index (41) in combination with moong dal (protein) and vegetables make this dish rich in carbohydrates, vitamin C, iron, protein and fibre. Note that rice has a GI of 69 and you can see why broken wheat is better for you.
