Suji Rava – 3 cups
Curd (Soar is better) – 5 cups
Cashew – ¼ cup
Bengal Gram – 1 ½ tbsp
Black Gram – 1 tbsp
Green Chilies – 5
Curry Leaves – ¼ cup
Carrot – 1 small
Coriander leaves – ¼ cup
Salt – to taste
Baking Soda (Sodium bicarbonate) – 1 ½ tsp
Mustard – 1 tsp
Oil – 4 tbsp
Pan fry Rava till it slightly starts to change color or a nice aroma emits and keep it aside.
Heat another pan & prepare tadka using Oil, mustard, Bengal gram, Black gram, Cashew, chopped green chilies & Curry leaves.
Add salt, baking soda & tadka to fried rava. Mix them well.
Finely chop coriander, churn curd & grate carrot.
Add the above to the rava mixture & mix well. If needed, add some water. The consistency should be like an Idli batter.
Now make Idlies as you normally would do. In the Idly plates, pour a little less batter than the normal as this will puff up more.
Serve it hot with Kobbari (Coconut) Chutney and you will be longing for more!!
