Oats Idli is very easy to make and so so delicious.
I am trying to include more and more oats in my diet. Oats are rich in essential nutrients and fibre which helps with lowering blood cholesterol when consumed regularly.
So eating oats is not the only thing important. To cook them the right way using less oil and loads of veggies, pairing with high protein will make them even more healthier.
Oats Idli is perfect of you like south Indian food. I have serve this with Andhra palli Peanut chutney but it can be served with coconut chutney too.

The peanut chutney really gave a nice punch to the idli, try it once.
