South Indian snacks, while mostly nutritious, are not always suitable for those with high blood sugar. This diabetes-friendly version of Idli replaces rice with wholesome moong dal and vegetables. Relish this popular snack with sizzling hot sambhar or Healthy Coconut Chutney.
- Roast the moong dal in a non-stick pan till all the raw smell disappears. Cool and soak in water overnight.
- Next day, drain and discard the water. Grind the dal in a mixer to a thick paste using little water if required.
- Add the carrots, cabbage, ginger-green chilli paste, besan, coriander and salt and mix well.
- Sprinkle the fruit salt on it and then a few drops of water on the fruit salt.
- When the bubbles form, mix gently.
- Pour the mixture gently into greased idli moulds and steam in a steamer for 10 to 12 minutes till they are done.
- Serve hot with healthy coconut chutney.
