Sooji idli, a quick and simple tea-time snack that is low in fat, this is a perfect option for health conscious people. I’ve used low-fat curds to impart a nice taste and to make the idlis soft. For a wholesome evening snack of just 150 calories, serve three idlis with green chutney, page. . . . Make sure that you make the idlis as soon as you have added the fruit salt to the batter to ensure a fluffy product.

Ingredients

Method
  1. Combine the semolina, curds, coriander, salt and 1 cup of water in a bowl, mix well and keep aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Heat 1 tsp of oil in a small non-stick pan and add the mustard seeds and cumin seeds.
  3. When the seeds crackle, add the urad dal and asafoetida and sauté on a medium flame for ½ minute till the urad dal turns brown.
  4. Add the cashewnuts, curry leaves, green chillies and sauté for 30 seconds.
  5. Add this tempering and the fruit salt to the batter and mix well.
  6. Grease the idli moulds with the remaining ¼ tsp of oil and pour 2 tbsp of the batter into each idli mould.
  7. Steam in a steamer for 8 to 10 minutes. Serve hot.

Handy tips :

  1. Fruit salt contains sodium so the salt has to added accordingly.
  2. Boil the water in the steamer before putting the idlis to steam.
