Idlis with Wheat Rava / Bansi Rava Idli ~ Diabetes Diet Food!

The last couple of days, my internet seem to be playing on me. I wanted to post on Konda's Menu everyday so that I stay focused. But rather I was unable to keep to my own schedule. It was fine that the items listed for Wednesday and Thursday were not new ones. Still I took pictures of them in the last moment, you can guess that from the picture.

Konda has been very happy with her lunch, so that is one very very good thing to happen. I can now get to make her eat better because she choice herself.

I made Parotta with Paneer Butter Masala for Wednesday. It was such a great idea as we all ended up taking for lunch. So it was a better plan. I even sent it for the boys, who were happy knowing it.

Thursdays was a relative easy one, Curd Rice with Pickle.

From next week onwards, I am planning to include new dishes that I can make and introduce to the kids. Hopefully I get to write down the list soon.

Coming to today's post, this is a healthy version of Idlis suited for the Diabetes Diet. Without Rice, this makes the idlis so healthy and ideal.

This is normally prepared when I am making the regular idlis with Rice. That way I can save some Urad dal batter for mixing this batter. During our recent visit to my sister in-law, Athamma had got a packet of Bansi rava, Rice rava along with few other things. So whenever regular idli is on menu, she also soaks the bansi rava for herself.

This gets done quickly provided you have the Urad Dal batter ready. Else you might have to plan to grind it a day ahead and store it in fridge.
