By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Its Blog Hop Wednesday!!!! This week i m paired with Deeksha Dee's Kitchen. Loved her appetizer recipes. I chose Masala Idli for today's post. i have made a few changes to the recipe. Please follow the link for the Original version.

For the idly
1/2 Cup Sooji/rava/semolina
1 Cup Whisked Low-Fat yoghurt
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 Cup Grated Carrot
Salt to taste

Mix all the ingredients together, except the baking soda. Just before steaming, add baking soda to the batter, give it a good stir, you can see batter turning bubbly. Grease the idli moulds with oil, pour the batter in the mould and Steam cook till done.

After unmoulding the idlies, cut them into 1 inch cubes.

For the Masala Idly
2 Medium Onions, chopped
1/2 Cup frozen peas
2 tbsp tomato Puree
1/4 tsp red chilli powder
1/4 tsp Coriander powder
1 tsp Sambhar powder
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
hing a pinch
turmeric a pinch
Coriander for garnishing

  • Heat Oil in a pan, splutter mustard seeds, add hing and turmeric, add onions and saute till translucent. 
  • Add Tomato puree, red chilli powder and coriander powder, saute till oil separates. 
  • Next add Frozen peas, Sambhar powder and half cup of water and little bit of salt. Be careful while adding salt, coz the idlies already have salt.
  • When the Water evaporates, add the chopped idlies and stir it gently.
  • Let it sit on the stove for another 5 minutes in a simmer flame. Garnish with Coriander leaves and serve hot
