Vegetable Mixed Idlis
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
To prepare khiru
3 cup boiled rice
½ cup udad dal
½ cup of finely chopped carrots
1 cup peas
½ cup finely chopped French beans
½ cup finely chopped capsicum
2 teaspoon chaat masala
3-4 tsp cooking soda
Soak both rice and udad dal for 6-7 hours. Grind it into the mixture. Again leave it for 4-5 hours. Take carrots, peas, French beans, capsicum, add salt, chaat masala and keep it for 10 minutes.
Put water into the vessel-idli cooker. Let the water get boiled. Now take khiru mixture into a small vessel how much we have to put it for one time. Add salt, ½ tsp oil and ½ tsp cooking soda and 3-4 spoon boiling water. Mix it well. Apply oil in the bowls or idle stand. Put vegetables in the stand and pour the mixture into it. Put it in the idle cooker and steam it for 15 minutes.
Take it out after 15 minutes and put the other set of idlis. Adding cooking soda to every portion of mixture to be steamed helps the idlis to raise it properly and make it soft.
Take out all the idlis and serve it with green chutney.
Other option is using the readymade khiru. The procedure will remain same. You can save your time in making the mixture. Be sure you take out the mixture out from the refrigerator before 30 minutes so that it comes to the room temperature.
