I grind for idli every weekend and it covers the breakfast and dinner for atleast 3 days. First day, it would be idli. Next day also idli..and the next few days the rest of the dough will be used for dosa...My son would say .."Enda ma, daily idli"...and DH would give me a sidelook with a sarcastic smile...So i thought let me try something different ..both in the looks and taste..and here we go with the ingredients:
1. Nicely chopped onions - 1
2. finely sieved carrot - 1
3. curry leaves
4. Dry chilli - 1-2
5. Idli dough
Method of preparation:
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a kadai, splutter 1 tbsp mustard seed, 1 tbsp uzhudu dhal seed, 1 tbsp of kadala paruppu and few groundnuts and few pottu (chutney) kadalai (optional..but it taste well and children would like the bite of groundnut here and there). Sim the burner so that these seeds do not get charred.
Add chopped onions, 1-2 broken red chilly and fry it until they are done. Add curry leaves and stir fry.
Add the above mix into the Idli dough and mix it well.
Pour the above dough in the idli maker and steam it till it is done.
The idli will not only tastes divine but also gives a picturesque look.
So how is the new look????? LOL
Enjoy with some spicy tomato chutney/cocunut chutney...
