Capsicum Oats Rava Idli

Oats rava idli is one of the healthy breakfast that can be made in a jiffy. I make this regularly at home. I keep trying many variations with the basic recipe and every time it comes out well. Few weeks back, I made Capsicum oats rava idli. I had added purée of capsicum, coriander leaves and mint leaves to the basic recipe. The light green coloured idlis were looking very beautiful. It was very soft, with a delicate capsicum flavour and very tasty indeed. Everyone loved it at home:)
Capsicum is rich in fibre, vitamin C, vitamin A , B vitamins ( B6) and anti oxidants . It is astringent in nature and hence good for gastrointestinal problems.
