Zucchini Idli

Idli with Zucchini..a real fusion..i tried this idlies with zucchini just to give a trial..but the result was wonderful..as we know zucchini is a low calorie vegetable, can have them largely while dieting, this vegetable will get cooked easily n good for health..its one of my creation...


1cup Idli Batter
2cups Zucchini grated
1tsp Ginger grated
2nos Green chillies

Grind grated Zucchini, grated ginger n green chillies together finely...grind them well without not even a single drop of water, as zucchini contains sufficient water, once they get grinded they looks somewat watery...make the idly batter as thick batter, so that once u add the grounded paste they will be in correct constitency for making idlies..add the grounded paste to the idli batter n mix them well..

Take the idli plates, grease with enough oil..pour a ladle of zucchini Idli batter n cook them in pressure cooker r idli cooker for 10 minutes..Take off from the idli plates n serve hot with any choice of chutney..U wont find more difference from usual idlies but ginger n green chillies will enhance the flavour of this idlies..

Low Caloric Zucchini idly, perfect breakfast while dieting!!

looks great priya. I just grate zucchini directly to the idli batter. i guess grinding with ginger and chillies will give it better flavor and taste.

You are on a roll girl! Very innovative recipe. Since zucchini is a bland vegetable it's so versatile, it can be used in a million ways.
