- 1 cup Semolina/Rava roasted in 1 tsp oil until lightly reddish
- 1/4 cup Chana Dal/red split peas soaked
- 1 carrot grated,
- 3 tbsp frozen Green peas,
- 2 tbsp plain yogurt,
- 1/4" fresh ginger grated,
- 1 green chilli minced,
- 1/4 onion minced,
- few cilantro,
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
Roast Rava until reddish,place in a bowl.Take 1 tbsp soaked Chana dal out of soaked dal and grind the rest until smooth.
Add both to the bowl with Rava.Add all the other ingredients including vegs and yogurt,mix well.
Then add enough water to make fairly thick batter,thicker than normal Urad Idli batter.
Adjust the salt and keep it covered for one hour for semolina to plump up
After an hour,if you need to water to thin a bit,add it but do not make it thin.Just enough to drop in lumps.
Spray the Idli moulds lightly with Non-stick spray,add batter halfway to the mould,tap a little to smoothen the top.
When done,steam in the pressure cooker for 10-12 mins.Take them out and cool on rack or serve immediately with Chutney
