Throughout the year, people may or may not eat traditional food. In this fast-paced life, most people seldom prefer cooking special food at home. However, any Indian festival at times changes that perception. Festivals are incomplete without a conventional sweet snack. Rava, also known as semolina, is one of the best sources to prepare traditional sweets. Rava appalu is the traditional recipe from Southern India. It is quite different in both texture and taste from regular milk-based sweets.
- Semolina is helpful in boosting energy as it contains healthy carbohydrates and is rich in iron.
- The presence of calcium makes semolina flour great for supporting bone health. According to the USDA data, a 100-gram of unenriched rava grains or flour contains 17 mg of calcium.
- Semolina may also help in sustaining a healthy nervous system as it contains magnesium, zinc, and phosphorus.
- Semolina contains zero cholesterol, making it a healthy grain. You can consume it frequently without worrying about your weight.
