Microwave Stuffed Vegetable Idli With Tomato Sambhar

Microwave Stuffed vegetable Idli!!! yeah i did today for our dinner with idli batter and with some left over masalas to give them a second chance to have them for our dinner....I didnt bought microwave idli moulds to prepare this easy microwave idli, i greased a shallow bowl and used those greased bowl to cook these microwave idlis...I poured already prepared idli batter to half of the bowl and added few spoons of some left over masalas which i prepared for making out samosas for snacks and covered again with few spoons of idli batter...I cooked this bowl filled with idli batter and masala for 5 minutes in high, and the final result was a soft and fluffy stuffed idlis...We enjoyed having this easy dinner with tomato sambhar which i do often for our dinner if our dinner goes for idli and dosas...This tomato sambhar suits wonderful with pongal and pooris, tangy tomato sambhar with onions, green chillies and cooked dal was a prefect pair for this microwave stuffed vegetable idli...

Microwave Stuffed Vegetable Idli:

2cups Idli Batter
1/2cup Any leftover masalas
Few drops of Oil

Grease a bowl and pour the idli batter to half of the bowl, add a tablespoon of masala, pour again the idli batter to cover the masala, cook in microwave for 5 minutes in high..insert a toothpick to check whether the idli is well cooked, if its come out clean, the idli is prefectly cooked..

Tomato Sambhar:

1cup Cooked dal
1no Onion (chopped)
2nos Tomatoes (chopped finely)
3nos Green chillies (slit opened)
2nos Garlic cloves (crushed)
