Medicinal Properties of Lime Rice
This recipe is cooling in nature and thus pacifies Pitta Dosha. It is easy to digest and might increase Vata, which is why it is balanced with lime, cumin seeds, hing (asafoetida), and mustard seeds. It is good for diarrhoea, anorexia, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. This recipe is also good for post-surgical patients.
People who have a tendency for constipation should avoid eating rice.
