Idli is  a staple South-Indian dish that is made for breakfast and also enjoyed as a snack. In North India, idlis are a healthy and filling snack idea.


Idlis help in weight loss as they are steamed. Steamed food doesn’t have fat and calories that can increase your weight.
Idlis are made with urad dal and rice. Thus, this south-Indian dish is easy to digest and healthy.
Idlis if made only with rice batter can be little heavy on the stomach. Rice is one of the causes of weight gain. Add some green vegetables and Indian spices to make idlis tasty and more nutritious.
If you steam idli and have it with citrus juice (like grape, orange or lemon juice), you can burn fats and also prevent carbs of rice from depositing in the body.

Ingredients :-

  • 2 cups – Par boiled rice
  • 1 cup – urad dal
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Oil for greasing


Wash and soak the rice and urad dal in water for atleast 5 hrs. Drain, wash and grind to a smooth paste. 3 Cover and keep aside overnight to ferment.  Add the salt and mix well.  Put spoonfuls of the batter into greased idli moulds and steam for 15 minutes.

Serve hot with coconut chutney or sambar.
