Is Shepu Sweet Idli  healthy?

Yes for some and no for others.

What's good in the idli.

Dill Leaves ( Suva bhaji, Shepu) : Our body needs to build white blood cells (WBC) to strengthen our immune system. Dill leaves with its loads of vitamin C helps us achieve this goal. Dill leaves are rich in antioxidants Vitamin A and Vitamin C which  prevent or stop cell damage in your body and thus lowers the risk of chronic diseases like cancerdiabetes and heart disease.

Coconut : The fresh coconut has saturated fats but most of it is MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) which promote weight loss. The high fibre content of 13.6 gm (45.3% of RDA) along with high lauric acid content of coconut improves cholesterol levels in the body. Improving the action of insulin secretion and lowering the raised blood sugar levels is yet another benefit of coconut for Diabetics.

What's the problem ?

Poha ( Beaten rice) : Pros for poha. High iron count (2.67 mg in a cup) of poha. Most people prefer eating poha for breakfast. The reason behind it is its high carb count. Poha helps us accomplish nearly 5% of potassium requirement which will control blood pressure and sustain cardiac health and  further aids in controlling blood cholesterol too. Cons. Due to high carb content it is not good source  of diabetic food. With calories to add along with carbs and not much fiber, poha should logically be constrained by those who intend to lose weight. High protein, less carbs and more fiber should be the target of weight watchers.

Jaggery (Gur) : When compared to sugar, which provides only empty calories, jaggery is considered to be a superior natural sweetener. Sugar is definitely one of the causes of many chronic diseases, but jaggery too needs to be consumed in moderate amounts. What you would consume is just about a tbsp (18 g) or a tsp (6 g). While those with heart diseases and weight loss can have a dessert made with this quantity of jaggery occasionally as an option to refined sugar, diabetics need to avoid this sweetener too as it can spike blood sugar levels instantly.
