Toor Dhal Idlis

Protein rich breakfast with plenty of nutritious values which suits tremendously to start our hectic day..I have crossed this toor dhal idlis at Pavithra's space while am searching for something new for our breakfast as my H was really bored of usual idlis..To change our usual breakfast i tried out this toor dhal idlis and served with hot and spicy Chettinad curryleaves kuzhambu which was quite a delicious pair to these toor dhal idlies..Am gonna try Pavithra's toor dal idli upma today with some leftover toor dhal idli batter...I followed everything as per Pavithra's instructions to prepare this protein rich toor dhal idli except i have added few tempered spices to enhance the flavour, thanks a lot Pavithra for sharing this soft and delicious toor dhal idlis..Am sending this idlis to EC's WYF-Breakfast and to Shanthi"s State Specials..


3cups Idli rice
1+1/2cup Toor dhal
1/2cup Urad dal
Salt
1/2tsp Mustard seeds+urad dal
1/2tsp Channadal
5nos Curry leaves
1/4cup Onions(chopped)
1tbsp Oil

Soak urad dal separately and rice with toor dal for atleast 3hours...Grind the urad dal until they turns soft and fluffy batter...take off the urad dal batter and grind the soaked rice and toor dal as slightly coarse batter..mix everything with enough salt..leave overnite for fermentation..

While making out idlis, heat the oil and add the mustard seeds, urad dal, channa dal, let them splutters..add the chopped onions and curry leaves and stir until the onions turns transculent..add this tempered spices to the toor dhal idli batter, give a stir..Grease the idli moulds with oil and pour the toor dhal idli batter in the moulds, steam cook for 10 minutes in idli cooker..

Serve hot with hot and spicy gravies or chutneys!
