The first two weeks or one month of an anti-candida diet says to limit grains, but candida really prefer simple carbs, not complex. The way the Kichadi is made with both rice and beans makes it more of a protein to the body, more complex carbs, not so much a starch or simple sugar. Carrots are fine for candida people too. Plus the fact that it is made with lots of pungent spices makes it easy to digest, so that makes it anti-candida too.
The reasons grains are suspect is because of gluten and allergies, and rice is not a gluten grain. I wouldn't eat large bowls of rice while on a candida diet because all by itself it's a starch, but neither would I cut it out entirely, it makes the diet too difficult to stick with.
