OATS IDLI RECIPE | INSTANT OATS IDLI

INDIAN DIET RECIPES

I have been thinking for a long time to post some diet recipes for a long time but somehow it got postponed but after getting many request from readers to post some diet recipes without any delay i thought i should post some Indian vegetarian diet recipes using the ingredients easily available at home. Though i didn’t get the pictures very satisfied due to poor lighting, hope to update this soon when i make this next time. The original recipe i tried from here but replaced with  broken wheat instead of semolina.

Generally i don’t personally diet too much but will not over eat also. I do walk for 30 to 45 minutes everyday and started yoga recently. Just keep in mind that whenever you want to be on diet ,  do not skip any meal , just try to avoid deep fried junk food and sweets. Eat lots of fruits and drink plenty of water.

Before trying this Oats Idli i was worried about the out come but it turned out very well and  i enjoyed with pudina chutney. My hubby who came from Office little early yesterday relished this Oats idli too.
