Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Barley idli is a very healthy twist to our normal idlis. Idli is a cereal-pulse combination, which gives us a complete protein (good quality protein). Barley is a very healthy carbohydrate which contains soluble fiber as well as b-glucan which helps drop weight, controls blood sugar levels and also lowers blood cholesterol.

  • Rice - 1 tbsp
  • Barley (jau) - 1 tbsp
  • Urad dal (split black lentils) - ½ tbsp
  • Mixed vegetables (carrots, french beans, peas etc.) - ¼ cup, finely chopped
  • Fenugreek (methi) seeds - 1 tsp
  • Salt - as per taste
Step 1 Wash and soak the rice, urad dal and fenugreek seeds in lukewarm water for 2 to 3 hours. Step 2 Drain and keep aside. Wash and soak the barley separately in lukewarm water for 2 to 3 hours. Step 3 Drain and keep ½ tbsp barley aside. Step 4 Drain the rice, urad dal and fenugreek seeds and grind along with the remaining barley in a mixer to a smooth paste. Step 5 Cover and keep aside for 3 to 4 hours to ferment. Step 6 Add the salt and mix gently. Apply a little water on the idli moulds and put a spoonful of the batter into them. Step 7 Sprinkle a little barley and 2 tsp of vegetables over each idli and steam in a steamer for 20 minutes. Step 8 Un-mould the idlis when slightly coul and serve immediately.
