About Broken Wheat and Oats Idli Recipe

Broken wheat/cracked wheat or Daliya is a nutritious ingredient and a great way to start your day with this wholesome meal. You can prepare this idli batter the previous night,refrigerate it and can use it the next day morning for breakfast. I have not used yeast to ferment the batter. The following measurement yields around 12 idlis. I made a simple tomato chutney as sidedish
