How healthy is Idli Sambar???
Idli is the top food on the list for "eating healthy especially while eating out" also one of the safest food.

Idlis are made from a combination of rice and urad dal which is fermented and then steamed, thus has probiotic properties

Both these processes are very good
for the digestive system and involve cooking with no oil at all. However most restaurants use baking soda to speed up getting the idli batter ready and while too much baking soda does destroy nutrients and affects the digestive system in the long run. Similarly the ready made idli batter also contains some amount of soda.

Another important things is the combination of cereal n pulse improves the quality of protein i.e gives the best quality protein comparable to that of an egg which is considered excellent.
