“Well I get these pranks in the middle of the night just willing to eat something that needs prior preparation….of course there is no idly batter or even a pack of instant mix at home. So just an experiment came out well.”
Soozi/Rava- 2 cups
Besan- 1/2 cup
Dhaniya – 3 strands chopped
Soda- 1/2 teaspoon
Dahi- 1 cup
Ajwain- 1 teaspoon
Ginger Garlic paste- 2 teaspoons
Salt- according to taste
1. Mix soozi , besan, salt, soda, ginger garlic paste and dahi. Let the mixture stand for an hour (meanwhile watch TV). You can add water if you feel the batter is too thick it should not be too watery.
2. Add Ajwain , Dhaniya and Chillies. Arrange your idly stand grease the stand with oil. Put water on the bottom of pressure cooker and place your stand. Remove the whistle of your pressure cooker’s lid and let the idily steam for 6-7 mins. Your idily is ready 🙂
I used a steamer its much easier that way. Let the idly cool and then remove from the stand. You can use a pointed knife to do this. You may serve this with chutney. I used a coconut chutney for this.
