Idli, the ever popular south Indian breakfast dish, has a universal appeal. It is considered much healthier over dosa, which is a crepe form made with the same batter. The traditional steamed rice and lentil cake, however, is still high in refined carbonydrates, as the ratio of white rice to lentil is usually 4:1. Hence, a whole grain
