Brown rice and Oats Idli


Idli is a steamed cake made from rice and black lentils (Urad dal) originating from Southern India. Idlis are made in a specialized mould and eaten with chutney, vegetable stew or other flavourful toppings for breakfast or as a snack. These small treats are good for you and, as a bonus, convenient for those on the go.

As a variation to make this fibre rich dish have added Brown rice, Oats, Red rice flakes and Soya Bran.

Health Benefits:

Soy bran refers to the finely pulverized or pureed hulls (or outer-casings) of dried soybeans. Soya bran helps lower Cholestrol levels and also ease constipation.

Red rice flakes are rich in Iron and Vitamin B.

Quantity: 18-20 Idlis
Cooking time: 15 minutes
