More nutritious ways to consume ghee rice
• Consider pairing rice and ghee with vegetables like beans, peas, mushrooms and paneer. This will increase the protein content of food
• Try replacing white rice with black rice or cauliflower rice, which has low-carb content
• You can also try clubbing it with salad and chicken. This will make your food rich in fibre and protein
• Consider pairing nimbu pani with protein-rich foods like nuts, cheese, or Greek yoghurt.
• Increase the amount of water or ice used in the lemonade to dilute the sweetness and lower the overall sugar content.
