Quick Makeover For Leftover Idli

Good to Know:

Legumes are an excellent source of easily digestible protein, fiber, iron, folic acid, and other
B vitamins. Legumes are rich in soluble fiber, which has been shown to help improve insulin
resistance. Legumes contain low levels of sodium and high levels of potassium, calcium and
magnesium - a combination that is associated with a reduced risk of heart disease. Folate, a
mineral also found in abundance in legumes, is thought to reduce blood levels of homocysteine, a
compound that can boost heart disease risk.
