When we look for the healthy diet plan, consumption of Healthy carbs is listed among the plan points. Healthy Carbs include whole grains, beans, fruits, and vegetables. now the question is ...what are Unhealthy carbs??? Unhealthy carbs (or bad carbs) are foods such as white flour, refined sugar and white rice that have been stripped of all bran, fiber and nutrients. So it is suggested that one should include a variety of whole grain in healthy diet, including whole wheat, brown rice, millet, quinoa, and barley. So here is the recipe made with broken whole wheat(daliya) and chala daal.
