Being a South Indian I just love idlis, I love them even more because they are steamed and super healthy. Today, we will give them a healthier twist by adding oats to it. These Oats Idlis are healthy, tasty and fluffy, and can be eaten with sambhar or any chutney of your choice. You must try this recipe and let me know how you like my version.
This week Shilpa Shetty gives a new twist to the famous South Indian food; idli. She prepares idli with oat flour which makes the dish extremely nutritious. Whole grain oats are high in nutrients and make an incredibly nutritious oat flour. They are an excellent source of dietary fibre and proteins making it a weight-loss friendly food. They also reduce the cholesterol levels which makes them beneficial for heart as well. Rich in healthy fats and low in carbohydrates, making idli with oat flour can add the nutritional value of your dish.
Apart from oat flour, Shilpa Shetty uses semolina and curd to make the idli batter. She also adds some carrots and coriander leaves into the mixture. Carrots are rich in anti-oxidants and are good for eyes. Loaded with vitamins and minerals, carrots can also reduce the risk of certain types of cancer.
Apart from the above mentioned ingredients, even lentils go into the making of this dish. One cannot afford to miss the health benefits of lentils. Lentils are a staple food in the Indian diets. They are a good source of proteins and keep you full for a longer duration.
Healthy snacking is an important part of a weight loss program. You might be eating all kinds of healthy foods in order to lose weight. But an unhealthy snack can ruin both your diet regime and can hamper your weight loss goals. A healthy snack like idli can provide you optimum nutrition in terms of protein, fat, fibre and carbohydrates.
You can have idlis in your snack, lunch or even dinner. They are light and can be digested easily. You can have them with sambhar or any chutney of your choice.
