Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Roasted Semi Coarse Semolina (Rava)
  • 1 Cup Roasted Vermicelli (Sevai)
  • 1/4 Cup Green Peas (Any vegetable of your choice)
  • 1 tbsp Curd
  • Chopped Green chilly to taste (Optional)
  • 1 tbsp Chopped Coriander (Optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Fruit Salt (Eno)
  • Water as required
  • Oil for greasing Idli moulds
  • Water for steaming

Instructions

  • Roast the Semolina and Vermicelli in some ghee (clarified butter) or oil , if not already roasted. Let it cool.
  • Once cool, in  wide bowl add the Semolina, Vermicelli, salt and curd and enough water. Mix everything. Do not too much water, we want a semi thick / dropping consistency batter, not runny. Let it rest for 5-10 minutes so that the Semolina hydrates/soaks water.

  • In the meantime grease the Idli moulds and keep the water for boiling in the Idli vessel or in a wide vessel big enough for the Idli moulds.
  • After 5-10 minutes, add the vegetables and give a quick mix. Just before putting the Idli batter in the mould add fruit salt and a tablespoon of water and mix everything. Adjust water consistency, if too thick. Do not add too much water, we want a semi thick / dropping consistency batter, not runny.
  • Add the batter in the greased Idli moulds and keep the Idli moulds for steaming for 10 minutes.
  • Remove after 10 minutes. Let it rest on the counter for 1 min. With a spoon, remove the Idli's.
