This is a quick video made on a working day just before going to the office. Correct me if any mistakes!! Any food that is easily available and healthy with timely plan everything matters, here it is this and in other parts of the world it’s different, but look for carb and protein combinations, which is better!!
Most days I prefer iddli or dosa with sambar or Bengal gram curry. Gluten-free complex carbohydrates with vegetarian protein, good for the gut, maintaining blood sugar level and nervous system.
Amongst Indian foods, the South-Indian cuisine is also a rich source of probiotics. Idly, dosa and other such food items are prepared by fermenting rice and lentils. This makes it high in live cultures of the good bacteria.
Dosa & sambar recipe for my clients and friends abroad!
3 cups rice

Soak it in water for 3-4 hours and grind to a smooth paste ( if iddli medium) and ferment it for 6-8 hours. Then make is like a pancake with vegetable oil.
Sambar is easy to cook with all vegetables and some sambar dal / tuvar dal
