These nutritious idlis are slightly heavier than the regular idlis as the batter is not fermented. They are very nutritive because of the combination of 3 dals and vegetables like methi, green peas and carrots. These are great for an early pregnancy boost and being an excellent source of iron, fibre, folic acid and vitamin c, they will ensure that you and your baby get plenty of goodness. You can even make sumptuous pancakes with the same batter instead of steaming them into idlis.
