Idli could be a very healthy food for obese patients………………………..

If one go back to history ………………idli was made up of only dehusked, fermented black gram…………… the component of rice has been recent addition………..since 17th century, where as idli had been a popular snack since 10th century.

Present practice of making idlis……

Addition of rice along with urdal or black gram is a recent phenomenon, the ratio being 2/3rd being rice and 1/3rd being the lentil. Despite this idli is considered healthy because no oil is added. And good amount of protein and its steam baked.

My recommendation for making idlis:

       Use 2/3rd of lentil and 1/3rd of rice

       Try to make only urdal/ black gram dehusked batter (as it used to be done initially)

       Do not add ghee or oil to the vessel of idli maker

       Make chutneys without adding oils

       Then sure u are destined loose weight

Happy idli making and eating!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 and loosing weight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
