Vegetable Idli

What a long day, today in kitchen! Quite different recipes for each one of us for each time to eat. Each of us enjoyed our own meal today with spices to our taste level. It is the almost the last set of idli batter, so thought will prepare veggie idli. And this is our brunch today.

Some colorful plates with idli came out of the idli pan. It made all of us drool esp., the nice aroma of the tomato. I do not mind eating as many idlis as I can but just stopped with four. Sometimes, for a veggie idli four is really heavy. Hasini hardly has one! Still I take all chance to make specifically for her as I add 3-4 veggies.

You need
2 cups idli batter
1/4 cup onion (finely chopped & sauted)
4-8 pieces of tomato
1/2 cup grated carrot & peas
green chillies (I avoid if I prepare of Haini)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp red chilli powder
coriander leaves to garnish
For Tampering
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1/2 tsp Urad dhal

Mix the onion and the tampered mustasrd and Urad. To the grated carrot & peas add the dry powders and the salt and keep aside.
In the idli pan, oil the idli plates well and then add little of sauted onion mix, 1 tsp of carrot mix and add half laddle of the idli batter. Place a slice of tomato and spread 1/2 tsp of carrot mix and a very small pinch of salt. Do this for all the idlis. Steam cook for 10-12 mins. Once done remove idlis and serve hot with your favorite chutney.

The idli has great colors on all the sides.
Enjoy this colorful yummy and ofcourse healthy idlis!
