Tendli bhaat, nutritious tendli comes together with spicy rice for a delicious change from the usual rice and dal. I have reduced the quantity of coconut to retain the flavour of the original while keeping the dish low-cal. Serve it with low-fat curds to mellow the spices and make for a wholesome meal.
