Mixed Dal & Vegetable idli

Mixed Dal & Vegetable idli

These nutritious idlis are made with 3 different types of dal and are a little heavier than the usual idlis. However, they are very nutritious as along with dals they also contain vegetables like fenugreek, green peas, and carrots. It is an excellent dish to have during early pregnancy as it rich in nutrients like iron, folic acid, vitamin C, and fiber. You also make delicious pancakes of the same batter instead of making idlis.
