Today I post “Oats Raava Idli” under Rich Calcium food theme in BM# 20. You can serve this idli as a starter or breakfast meal, accomplished with tomato sauce and Juice. Oats are generally considered "healthful", or a health food, being touted commercially as nutritious. The discovery of the healthy cholesterol-lowering properties has led to wider appreciation of oats as human food. Oatmeal is a full source of calcium and proteins.
For this recipe, first we mix oatmeal and raava together with curd as a batter and mix onion peas tempering in it for flavors and decore with few raisins and cashew. We love the taste of oats idli with sauce… a complete meal for breakfast.
