Rice vs Roti
Roughly speaking, there is not much difference in the nutritional value of rice and chapati. Both are obtained by processing grains and the only major difference is the sodium content. Rice has negligible sodium content while 120 grams of wheat contains 190 mg sodium.
White rice is stripped off its vital nutrients, which is present in the bran and germ portion. So, it contains more calories and fewer nutrients. 60 grams of rice contains 80 calories, 1 gram protein, 0.1 gram fat and 18 grams carbs.
