    It may not harm your stomach, but I shudder to think what it
    is doing to a diabetic's blood glucose levels an hour after
    breakfast.

    The first ingredient is two cups of rice, the rest includes
    lentils.

    What is an "idlis"?

    Idli's are steamed rice/lentil cakes. They are normally served with a
    rich, spicy sauce called Sambar. They are one of my favorite breakfast
    treats although I can only eat a few of them at a meal. They impact my
    glucose less than you might imagine as the lentils seem to mitigate
    the effect of the rice a bit.

    While I've made idli's from scratch as this recipe describes there are
    packaged mixes available in our local Indian stores that are much
    easier and quicker to make.

    Hey, Pete, as often happens, I can't eat that, but it sure is nice to
    see you 'round these parts again!

    I'm Ok. We got flooded in Hurricane IKE along with a lot of Houston
    houses.
    We're gradually getting the house put back together.

    Pete, it is certainly good to see you posting again. I have missed your
    interesting recipes!

    We knew the hurricane was coming and moved almost everything to
    safety. All 200+ cookbooks are safe and dry.

    we only had about a foot (33cm) of water through the house. It
    damaged floors and some wallboard but there was no major loss of
    anything.
    We were without electricity for 16 days but were able to cook on the
    gas stove. I bought a small generator that kept the refrigerator cold
    and gave us a few lights.

    Others had it far worse as over 25,000 homes were destroyed along the
    Texas coast. Some people came home to a pile of rubble and a concrete
    slab where their home used to be.
