This is not only a healthy but also tasty idli. Best part of this idli is there is no soaking or fermentation required unlike the traditional idli batter. I got hold of this recipe here and needless to say, thanx a ton Priya for such a lovely idli. I have slight modifications to my idli. She has beautiful collection of recipes, my fav are the ones with oats, love the way she innovates and comes out with a new recipe everytime with this humble ingredient.
1 cup Rava/Sooji/Semolina
1 cup Oats Powder
1Bunch coriander leaves
1tsp Grated Ginger
2 Fresh Green Chilly
1tsp Cumin Seeds
Salt as per taste
Dry roast oats until pinkish or aromatic for 3-4 mins, cool and grind to fine powder.
Make a fine paste of coriander leaves, green chilly, ginger and cumin with little water to fine paste.
In a mixing bowl add all the ingredients add yoghurt and mix to thick batter, similar to the idli batter.
Grease your idli plates and pour a ladle of batter abd steam cook for 10-15mins.
Voila, your yummy, tasty and healthy idli is ready to be paired with chutney or sambhar of your choice.
Before pouring the batter to the idli plates, you can add 1/2 tsp eno fruit salt and mix well and prepare the idlis.
I refrained from adding Eno, and still had soft idlis.
