baking/cooking soda Grated cabbage Cauliflower Greenpeas Chopped coriander

Idli With Greengram husked dal-2
1 Cup green gram dhal 11/2 tbsp grated fresh coconut 5 green chillies A Pinch of asafoetida 1/2 Cup thick sour curd A pinch cooking soda salt to Taste mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp Method:-

Mix both the ground paste together with sour curd. Heat oil and splutter mustard seeds in it and pour over the batter with soda. Mix well and steam idlis in usual way immediately (No need to ferment this batter)

MULTICOLOURED IDLIS This is a creative idli, i read in a book.

Chatni is prepared with very little water.

This chatni is placed at the center of the idli cup; The idli dough is poured around the center. You may shake the plate very lightly to ensure that shape is to your desired form. Other alternatives are: Idli dough is poured first. Pour ChatnY in different designs. Be Creative. Pour idli dough into the idli cup first. Add a thin layer of chatni over it. You may have to develop your own thickness / thinness of the chatni to your liking. Finally, pour another layer of idli dough to create a sandwich. Chatni is mixed with idli dough. Course or fine texture of the chatni helps you create different grain texture.

Different types of chatni (or even chatni powder / pickle) give different color and tast Even sambar can be used instead of chatni. Make the sambar thick enough to avoid diluting the idli dough. If you use bisibELe bhaath powder to make the sambar, you may even get a bisibEle idli! If you prefer, you can use puLiyOgare gojju (curry in smooth sauce) in place of chatni. careful about the spiciness control! Another variation would be to use onion gojju. You get Indianized pizza like idli!

Do you like it sweet? Go ahead and use pooraN or coconut with jaggery instead of chatni. Be bold and creative. Add zest and enhance pleasure to your palette.

To really get rainbow idli combinations, both in appearance and taste, you can develop c variations for a variety of colors, all using ground vegetables for colors in proper mix You can do tricolor idli for Indian Independence Day.

You can use texture variations using green pea, shredded carrots, pearl onions and other

vegetables.

Spread on the mat.(Or take a thick plastic sheet instead) Stir very well and start to make vadi with a small spoon(it should be warm,not soo hot). Take aspoonful batter and just put on cloth/plastic cover. Use whole batter in this way. If the sun light is good & hot,the vadiyams will be dried only one day. You can remove in the evening,otherwise let them dry for one more day,important thing is they should dry completely. If you use cloth,turn the cloth(backside),and spray/sprinkle water. allow to stayfor 3-4 min,then we can remove easily,but do not forget to dry them on more sundry!
