Notes

I made only half the qty of the above recipe. I got 10 idli's from half the qty. I used 1/4 tsp of bicarbonate of soda for half the qty also. I used 1/2 - 3/4 cup of water for half the qty.
You can add other veggies like cooked peas also in this recipe. Add it along with the cooked onions.
It's better to serve it immediately.

  1. Hello Maria!

    I tried making the above recipe today. It came out okay and tasted good but i think it was a bit sticky. Is it supposed to be like that or is its texture exactly like the normal fermented idli?

    Hope to see more instant recipes from you :D

    • Hi Lakshmi,

      It’s texture is not like regular idli, but it’s not sticky. It’s very much similar to rava idli texture.

      Will try to add more such recipes as and when I try them.

      Cheers

  2. Hi Maria,
    I tried this recipe today morning,with slight variation. didn’t do the fry part. and put grated ginger and green chilies. and it came out really well…. and the best part abt it was, u don’t need to ferment it…. and a life-saver on the day u overslept. :)
    Thank you so much…
    next time will try with carrot and cashews, if i wake up early ;)

    Regards
