Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Moong dal is an amazing source of vegetarian protein, a good source of fibre as well as potassium. Adding curds to it adds up to the protein value. Not only moong dal but spinach is an amazing source of potassium too. Potassium helps our muscles to function more efficiently (even heart muscles), improves our nerve function and helps kidneys to filter blood. Now we know why popeye loved spinach.

INGREDIENTS
  • Raw yellow moong dal (split yellow gram)- 2 tbsp 
  • Blanched and roughly chopped spinach (palak)- 3/4th cup
  • Finely chopped green chillies-3
  • Curd- 1 tbsp
  • Salt- as per taste
  • Fruit salt- a pinch
DIRECTIONS
Step 1 In a bowl, soak yellow moong dal for 3 hours. Later drain the water and keep it aside.  Step 2 In a mixer add soaked moong dal, spinach, and green chillies. Grind it to make a smooth paste without using any water.  Step 3 Grease the idli moulds with little oil and pour the batter in them. Steam for about 20 minutes.  Step 4 Serve warm with mint-coriander chutney.
