For all you diet conscious South Indians who were wandering everywhere looking out for healthy foods, wait a second. You will be astonished to find that the South Indian table definitely has healthy foods to offer.

All steamed items like IDLI, SEVAI, APPAMS are high on nutrition. Puffed rice balls and ground nut balls are also high in nutritional value.

There are urundu's(balls) made from different flours like the green gram flour or the Bengal gram flour with a mix of brown and white sugar that is usually given to children during summer. The PUTTU which is made of unpolished red rice becomes a healthy snack with less use of coconut.
Another healthy snack is ADAI which consists of four kinds of pulses and drumsticks and spinach leaves when prepared with less oil. MASALA PURI, again made with less oil is also a healthy snack.
