Ingredients

Method

    For the idli batter

    1. Wash and soak the idli rawa and poha in water for at least 2 hours.
    2. Wash the urad dal thoroughly and soak it in water for at least 2 hours.
    3. Blend the rice semolina and poha in a blender to make a smooth batter.
    4. Grind the urad dal separately to a smooth paste using a little water.
    5. Mix the two batters and add salt. Cover and keep aside for 6 to 8 hours for fermenting.

    For the stuffing

    1. Coarsely grind the mixed vegetables in a blender without using any water.
    2. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan, add the green chillies, curry leaves, urad dal and mustard seeds and sauté for a few seconds.
    3. When the seeds crackle, add the vegetables and salt and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes. Divide the stuffing into 15 equal portions. Keep aside.

    How to proceed

    1. Place a spoonful of the idli batter into each greased idli mould.
    2. Place a portion of the stuffing over the idli batter.
    3. Pour a spoonful of idli batter to cover the stuffing on each idli mould.
    4. Steam for 10 to 12 minutes. Wait for 1 minute and take out the idlis.
