If you have batter on hand, then idli is undeniably one of the easiest snacks to prepare. However, plain idli might not be very appealing to some, especially kids.
You could make it more exciting by dunking cubes of idli in sambhar or curd, with appropriate tempering and garnishes. This lip-smacking Dahi Idli recipe is easy to prepare, but extremely flavourful thanks to the tempering of mustard and cumin seeds along with chillies and curry leaves.
If you have a mini idli plate, you can prepare this recipe with mini idlis instead of idli strips. It will look even more awesome!
- Combine the curds, powdered sugar, salt and ¼ cup of water in a deep bowl and mix well and keep aside.
- Heat the ghee in a small non-stick pan and add the mustard seeds and cumin seeds.
- When the seeds crackle, add the round red chillies, curry leaves and asafoetida and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
- Pour this tempering over the curds mixture and mix well.
- Arrange the idlis on a serving plate and pour the tempered curd mixture evenly over it.
- Serve immediately garnished with coriander.
