Popular South Indian Snacks like idli and dosa are extremely tasty and nutritious, but often not suitable for those with high blood sugar because they are made predominantly with rice.

Here, is a diabetic-friendly version of idli that replaces rice with wholesome moong dal. Adding veggies to the batter improves the nutrient-quotient as well as flavour and texture of the idlis. Relish this mouth-watering Green Moong Dal and Vegetable Idli right off the steamer, with sizzling hot Sambhar.

Without the use of any soda-bi-carb, just with regular fermenting the idlis had turned out very good. Tasted good with sambhar when served hot. Henceforth I will serve only these healthy moong dal idlis to my father who is a diabetic. tx for the recipe.
