BM #107 Week 1 Day 2 -

For today, check out this healthy instant idli made with Ragi, Oats and Semolina.

The idli turned out slightly dense so I felt I could increase the amount of ENO fruit salt (I have changed the quantity in the recipe accordingly).

Recipe Inspiration here
Ingredients - 

Ragi flour 1/2 cup
Oats Coarsely crushed 1/2 cup
Bombay Rava (Sooji/Semolina) 1/2 cup
Carrots and Peas coarsely crushed 1 cup (Use more vegetables finely chopped)
Green Chillies + Coriander leaves + Curry leaves coarsely crushed 2 Tbsp
Almonds or Peanuts or Cashews crushed 2 Tbsp 
Water 1 cup + more if needed
Yogurt/Curds 1/2 cup 
ENO Fruit salt 1 tsp (Or baking soda 1/2 tsp)
Seasoning (Oil 1 Tbsp, Chana Dal 1 Tbsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Jeera 1/2 tsp, Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp)

Method Of Preparation -

In a heated wok/kadai add oil and the seasoning. After the mustard seeds splutter, saute the crushed vegetables.

Add the green chilli mixture, and coarsely crushed nuts to the vegetables. Also add the sooji, oats and ragi flour.

Roast the mixture for about 5 min. Add salt to taste, remove from fire. This mixture can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for up to a month.

After the mixture cools a little, add yogurt and water, cover to make a thick batter and set aside for 10 min. 

After the water is almost absorbed, if needed add a little yogurt or more water to make the mixture come together. Sprinkle ENO fruit salt and mix gently.

Grease the idli plates and pour ladle full of the mixture in each slot and steam for 10-15 min.

Unmould and serve with your favorite chutney.
