SOYA WHEAT IDLI

When first i tried soya dosa with rice that time i have this idea in my mind, from that time i wanted to try these helthy idlis . yeh idli s are my all time fav. food i can eat idli in any form if it is a rava idli or normal idli and it is for lunch, dinner or any time ha ha haa.... ok enough about me comming to the recipe.
First i tried with broken wheat as it is means i did'nt fry them and did'nt grind them so that time they are little hard did'nt cook properly. So i want to try one more time and this time i fried broken wheat lightly and grind in to a fine rava and yes yahoooooo i got soft idli s.My hubby says that he did'nt make any difference in between urad dal and soya beans.Last week i made wheat idli with urad dal but idid'nt make much difference between them.
any way this is a very helthy break fast i think and a very good choice for diabetic people, make a chutney with vegetables like tomato, brinjal or ginger chutney or sambar with lots of vegetables, because there is no rice in this and rich in fiber and i added fenugreak seeds also sooooo can i think like that?
And i am dedicating this recipe to my dear Dad and my sister and this is for you both nanna and radha.
Read a very good Information about Diabetes at Srivalli s What is Diabetes at her Spice your life!

Dry soya beans ---- 1 cup
Broken wheat ----- 2 1/2 cups
Fenugreak seeds ---- 1 tea sp
Salt to taste

METHOD:----
Soak fenugreak seeds in water.
Soak soya beans in water for over night next day wash and remove the skin by scrubing the beans with your hands, they came out very easyly.(If you don't want to remove the skin then just leave it only thing is it will take little more time to grind
Dry roast broken wheat in a pan till nice aroma comes out then grind in to a fine rava in a dry blender or mixee that we use for masalas.
Now add 2 cups of water to wheat rava mix well and keep a side.
Now griend soya beans, fenugreak seeds in a wet griender or in a mixee in to a very smooth batter,this will take 15 - 20 min.
If you are useing a mixee or blender griend soya beans in to asmooth paste ,Remove from the blender and beat well with a egg beater or with a wire whisk to produce air in the batter it helps to ferment the batter well.
Now add salt to taste and soked wheat rava mix well with a spoon if need add some water at this time.(this batter should be like normal idli batter so make that thick ness.)
Cover and leave the batter for fermentation for over night in a warm place.
Next morning make idli s
Grease idli plates and pour the batter and steam them in a idli cooker or a pressur cooker with out whistle for 10 min.
Serve hot these soya wheat idli with any spicy and tangy chutney like ginger chutney or brinjal chutney or with sambar that is your choice .
Enjoy your break fast.

They look soft and fluffy Rekha. The goodness of soya and wheat together! what else would one need? actually frying broken wheat makes it more easy to cook, also they turn edible when you cool it rather than the hot idlis.

Rekha, I was bowled by the soya + wheat combo for breakfast in the form of idlis (nutri packed and low fat) and prepared this yesterday. They came out very well. I have a Q, the batter did not ferment(it did not rise) so I added a pinch of baking soda to it. Did the batter ferment well for you? Just checking if I needed to do something else to get the fermenting properly.
