Vegetable Idli

After the experiment with dosa which was my previous post -Fruity Uthappam, I thought of trying something new with idlis. So I tried this Veggie Idli which was suggested by one of my friends. I liked her idea and tried it today morning for breakfast. The idlis turned out really good and I liked biting the vegetables here and there :) I am not a great fan of idlis, but I liked these a lot as its quite different from the plain idlis. Kids will also love it when they see these colourful and new idlis . My son also liked them a lot. Hope its a great idea for your breakfast !! Have a great weekend...





Ingredients:
3-4 cups of Idli batter
3/4 cup Vegetables of your choice (I used carrots, green peas and corn)
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1 tsp Cumin seeds
1/2" piece Ginger, finely chopped
2 Green chillies, finely chopped 
4-5 Curry leaves, finely chopped
2-3 strands of Coriander leaves, chopped
Salt
Oil

Heat oil in a pan. Splutter mustard seeds and cumin seeds. Add curry leaves, green chilli and ginger. Saute for few seconds and add vegetables. Saute the vegetables for 2-3 minutes. Add a little salt and coriander leaves. Mix well.

Take the idli batter in a bowl. Add a little salt and mix well. Transfer the vegetable mixture into this and stir well.Grease slightly the idli moulds and pour the batter into these. Steam them for about 10 minutes or until the idlis are well cooked.

Serve with chutney or sambhar.

Shoba,

This is regarding your query on Oats Almond Cookies. Yes they were crunchy.The amount of wheat flour is less in the recipe and also I have added some crisco which made them crunchy

Thanks
