Traditional idlis get a facelift with this exciting spinach stuffing! A flavourful and colourful mixture of spinach and onions is cooked between layers of idli batter to make a spongy, tasty delight that combines beautifully with chutney and sambhar. Make sure the spinach mixture is completely cool before steaming it; otherwise it might get soggy and spoil the texture of the Stuffed Spinach Idli. Enjoy this delicacy hot and fresh, for a memorable breakfast!
- Heat the butter and oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the green chillies and onions and sauté on a medium flame for 1 minute.
- Add the spinach and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 3 to 4 minutes.
- Allow the mixture to cool completely. Keep aside.
- Grease the idli moulds using little oil, put 1 tbsp of the spinach mixture in each mould and top it with half a ladle of the idli batter evenly over it.
- Repeat step 1 to fill 15 more idli moulds.
- Steam in a steamer for 10 minutes or till the idlis are cooked.
- Repeat with the remaining batter and stuffing to make 8 more idlis in 1 more batch.
- Serve hot with sambhar and coconut chutney.
