Brown Rice Ragi Idly - Diabetic Friendly Recipes !



             Today wasn't in a mood to blog, my knee pain was more and not able to sit and do or concentrate on anything. I feel that i should take some break and look after my health. I was suffering with this knee pain for almost 4 years, yes i fell and got injured during my first pregnancy and that time i took Physiotherapy treatment to relieve from pain and did not diagnose the actual problem. Then after delivery with Infant and second pregnancy this and that...i did not look at my leg pain so far...Yesterday, got appointment and went to hospital and after 2 hours examination, She concluded that my knee got misalignment of ligaments and it can be cured by taking PT and made appointments till April end and hope for the good result. So till that i could not concentrate on blogging and blog hop so planning to take a short break.
          Ok will move to today's recipe...Day 6 of Blogging Marathon and today's whole grain recipe nothing but very easy and simple Brown Rice Ragi Idly. I planned to make stuffed idly but because of this knee pain decided to lessen my job and finished with plain idly alone. I often make idly with brown rice and this time for a change added Ragi flour to my Brown Rice Idly batter . It turned out good but compared to idly dosa came out really good. My kids loved idlis more than the dosa.

Preparation Time : 5 minutes
Cooking Time : 12-15 minutes
Makes About 12 idlis (based on idli plate size)
Ingredients
  1. Brown Rice Idly Batter    1 cup
  2. Ragi Flour   1/2 cup
  3. Water    1/4 cup tbsp if needed
  4. Salt    a pinch

Method
Take one cup of fermented Brown rice idly batter in a bowl,add ragi flour,water and salt.
Mix well and set aside for 10-15 minutes.
Then pour the prepared idly batter to the greased idly plates and cook for 12-15 minutes or until done.(check tooth pick test, the toothpick should come out clean without fresh batter)
Now the soft brown rice Ragi idlis are ready to serve.
Serve Hot with coconut chutney/sambar etc.

I tried dosa with the same batter it also come out really good..

    1. Well fermented batter will give you fluffy idlis...and also after steaming the idlis,don't try to remove from the idly plates...sprinkly cold water over the plates n leave it cool for few minutes,then using wet spoon remove idli...keep in MW for 30 seconds n serve hot!
      hope this helps...

  23. It is hard to accept/announce about break. But I can understand the break is required to balance life,health and work. Take care sangee. try to post atleast 2 simple recipes per week, that you can do without much effort and inturn keep your blog awake. Or leave it completely and come again with big bang of recipes.

    I made ragi idly once but it was a complete goof up. your's looks like soft and spongy. Like both dosa and idly.

  34. Love the idlis.

    I know you are passionate about blogging, but it is much more important to take care of one's health. So please do take care and concentrate on recovering from the knee pain, then you can come back to full time blogging. You can try a couple of MW recipes which cuts down the standing time a lot.

  35. Although I love idlis but I'm missing them badly in Kenya here...just waiting to be back to Bangalore and try this one out...I'm damn sure my doll would love it and it's so healthy. :)

  36. Hey, please take due care of your health. Blogging and intensive cooking can be kept on a hold for some time till you recover and then you can have that pace back. It's always better to take rest and get completely cured rather than bearing your pains for a long time. You have years and years to do cooking and blogging, my dear, but it's just about a few days that you have got to rest, so get well soon first. Our wishes and love are all with you. :)
