CARROT IDLI


Idli rice – 2 cups
Raw rice – 1 cup
Urad dal --- 1/4 cup
Grated carrot --- 1 cup
Salt to taste
Soak rice and dal separately for 3-4 hours then grind dal in to a very smooth paste this should be like if you drop a little dal batter in a small bowl of water batter should dissolve in the water with out stirring
Now grind rice in to a coarse paste now add grated carrot and run for 2 min. remove and mix with dal paste mix well add salt and mix well again this makes your batter frothy and leave for over night to fermentation .
Next day morning grease idli plates and pour carrot idli batter as normal idlis and steam cook for 6-8 min. or till done.
1 thing I want to share with you all is I add 1/2 cup carrot while grinding and rest of 1/2 cup I add grated so that you can get carrot pieces when you are eating
And I served with curry leaves powder(curivepaku karam) and coconut chutney also
And also a very good combo with red onion chutney
Enjoy healthy carrot idlies
