Tava Idli: A masaledaar twist to your everyday favourite!

From those crispy pakoras to that spicy pani puri, did you bid adieu to all that mazedaar khaana only because of diabetes? Well, your Cooking Companion is well aware of your cravings and has a tailor-made recipe to turn your everyday idlis into a masaledaar meal. But wait, you must be wondering how this recipe is good for you. Read on…as Fortune VIVO Buddy dishes out all the tips and tricks!

Be it daily breakfast, a mid-meal snack or even an appetizer before main meals, tava idli is a quick healthy fix which helps control your blood sugar levels. The veggies not only add that colourful zing and flavour but also contribute to your fibre intake.

Enough said about the benefits cause we know you can’t wait to break the monotony of eating just idlis! Begin by adding Fortune VIVO Diabetes-Care Oil to a pan and sauté the veggies for a few minutes along with the ginger-garlic paste. Now, here comes the trick to your scrumptious tava idlis.

Add in the pav bhaji masala along with salt and left over idlis. Give it a stir and once you’re all done, drizzle some lemon juice and sprinkle coriander leaves. There you go! Your favourite snack has been recreated which you can enjoy with your family anytime.

VIVO Buddy Tip: Love thy veggies? Throw in some corn, bell peppers or mushrooms as well. And to bring up the fibre content, you can opt for brown rice idlis!
