Ingredients


For The Batter
1 cup semolina (rava)
1/4 cup curds (dahi)
1 cup water
1 tbsp chopped coriander (dhania)
salt to taste

For The Tempering
1/2 tsp mustard seeds ( rai / sarson)
1/2 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
a pinch of asafoetida (hing)
1 tsp urad dal (split black lentils)
1 tbsp broken cashewnuts (kaju)
4 to 6 curry leaves (kadi patta)
2 green chillies , chopped
1 tsp oil
1/2 tsp ghee

Other Ingredients
3/4 tsp unflavoured fruit salt
oil for greasing

Method
For the batter

  1. Combine all ingredients together, other than the fruit salt and leave aside for 10 minutes.

For the tempering

  1. Combine the oil, ghee, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, urad dal and asafoetida in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 2 minutes.
  2. Add the cashewnuts, curry leaves, green chillies and microwave for 1 more minute.

How to proceed

  1. Pour 1 cup of water in the base of a microwave safe idli steamer and microwave on high for 1 minute. Grease the idli moulds using little oil.
  2. Add the tempering and the fruit salt to the batter and mix well.
  3. Pour 2 tablespoons of batter into each greased cavity of the idli moulds and microwave, covered, on high for 2 minutes.
  4. Repeat with the remaining batter to make 8 more idlis.
  5. Serve hot with coconut chutney and sambhar.

Tips
  1. Handy tips :
  2. Fruit salt contains sodium so the salt has to added accordingly.
  3. After adding fruit salt you have to make the idlis immediately as the fruit salt will loose its effect very soon.
  4. The idlis will not fluff up very well.
  5. We have used plastic microwave safe idli stand with 8 idlis in each container.
  6. You can use small glass bowls instead and cover them with plastic (microwave safe) wrap to retain the moisture.
  7. The time taken to cook the idlis will depend upon the number of idlis you make at a time.
