Keto Idli | Keto foods |Keto Recipes | Low Carb


Idli is a south Indian snack, which is fermented and gluten free. A healthy combination for a carb. This is very popular in India as a breakfast item as it is considered very healthy. Since the dal/lentil and rice are fermented, they are in a predigested form. To top it, it is steamed, so it considered very light for digestion and is recommended for patients in the hospitals.
Well, besides that I like for other reasons. Most Indians grow up eating it at least once a month and the light idli with the spicy tangy sambar maked for a killer combination. Idlis is very versatile I even eat it in place of breads with my curries, or with coconut chutney or even crisped up on the pan. Use your favorite seasonings to make interesting dishes. I have missed all my South Indian snacks like Idli, Dosa, Sambar and Rassam on Keto for a long time. But I have taken it upon myself to make Keto versions of all. My Rassam, the tangy soup recipe has already been posted. Link shared below. Idli is next. Hope you try it out and leave me a comment. Happy Cooking!
