Shilpa Shetty gives a new twist to the famous South Indian food; idli. She prepares idli with oat flour which makes the dish extremely nutritious. Whole grain oats are high in nutrients and make an incredibly nutritious oat flour. They are an excellent source of dietary fibre and proteins making it a weight-loss friendly food. They also reduce the cholesterol levels which makes them beneficial for heart as well. Rich in healthy fats and low in carbohydrates, making idli with oat flour can add the nutritional value of your dish. Apart from oat flour, Shilpa Shetty uses semolina and curd to make the idli batter. She also adds some carrots and coriander leaves into the mixture. Carrots are rich in anti-oxidants and are good for eyes. Loaded with vitamins and minerals, carrots can also reduce the risk of certain types of cancer.
