Today was totally hectic.I wasn’t sure whether i would be doing this post. Thank God to Super Singer, all eyes are glued there and i m here waltzing with my post. Idlies have become a rarity in our house these days. Naturally,both my Kiddo’s love dosa and hubby doesn’t prefer idly/dosa much and I m totally into a No Rice regime, so Idly is a total No No!!!
When Srivalli announced Instant Idly/Dosa theme for BM#34, i really felt like making idly again. Had a big stash of Bulgur in the pantry, so thought of whipping up a quick idly with that.
Ingredients(Makes 8 Big Idlies)
1 Cup of Burghol/Bulgur
1/2 Cup Yoghurt
1.5 Cups of Buttermilk
2 pinches of baking soda
1/4 Cup Grated Carrot
2 tbsp chopped Coriander leaves
2 sprigs of curry leaves
Salt to taste
2 nos green chilies
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds/jeera
1/4 tsp Peppercorns
1 tbsp Coconut
- Take Burghol/Bulgur in a wide bowl. Take the Seasoning ingredients in a mixer and grind it to a coarse powder.
- Add the coarse mixture to the bulgur/burghol. Add yogurt, buttermilk, grated carrot, coriander leaves and curry leaves and mix well. Let this mixture sit for 10 minutes.
- Keep the idly plates greased with gingely oil. Just before steaming add baking soda and give it a brisk stir.
- Pour a laddle full of batter in the idly plate and steam cook for 10 minutes. Serve Hot with Chutney/Gun Powder/Sambhar. I served it with gun powder and carrot chutney
