This week I am sharing a very versatile breakfast recipe from south India. Yes ….it is our very own Idli . This is an instant recipe that needs no soaking and just 30 mins to put all the ingredients together including resting time.
This recipe is very close to my heart as it is quick , healthy and delicious. My family prefers to have have these Idli as it can be prepared without any hassle. March 30th is celebrated as WORLD IDLI DAY. Idli can be served with various chutneys and Sambar as well.These steamed cakes will just melt in your mouth.
This week’s theme was suggested by Mayuri Dee who is a wonderful blogger and blogs at https://mayuris-jikoni.com/. My humble contribution for 188th #Foodiemonday #Bloghop theme @IdlyMedly is this Oats and Almond meal vegetable Idli.
Recipe for Instant Oats and Almond Meal Vegetable Idli:
2 Cups Instant Oats
1 Cup Semolina / Sooji
3/4 Cup Almond Meal
1 Red Capsicum Finely Chopped
450 Gms Thick Yogurt
1 -1.5 Cups Water
Salt to Taste
1 Tsp Mustard Seeds
Generous Pinch of Hing / Asafoetida
10 Curry leaves roughly Chopped
1/2 Cup Grated Carrots (Optional)
3 Tsp Oil
Take a wide bottom pan. Dry roast the instant oats for about 2 mins. Transfer it to a plate and allow it to cool. Dry roast Almond meal for about a minute and transfer it to plate in order to cool. Add oil to the pan, add mustard seeds.Once they splutter add chopped capsicum, grated carrots, asafoetida and curry leaves.Saute for a minute. Now add the sooji and roast on low flame for 2 minutes. Mix well and switch off the flame.
Grind the roasted oats and almond meal separately. It should be slightly coarse and not too fine.
Take a wide bottom bowl. Add coarsely powdered oats , almond meal and Rava mix. Add yogurt and mix well. Slowly add water to adjust the consistency and get the idli batter consistency. Close the lid and allow it to rest for about 20 mins.
Grease the idli moulds. Pour the batter upto 3/4 th of the mould. Steam the idlis in a cooker or idli cooker untill done. Use a toothpick to check and once it come out clean it is done.
Healthy and delicious Idlis are ready and can be served with any spicy chutney and or sambar. I served them with spicy Onion Chutney.
