Sambar Mini Idly

Needless to say we guys can survive for many days with this cute tiny mini idlis with anything, our most favourite is this delicious sambar mini idly, my teddies enjoyed this incredible delicious mini idly at a famous restaurant in ECR road while we were travelling from Pondicherry to Chennai,from that day they got hooked with this tiny tasty idlis, obviously i came to Paris with my mini idli plates and i couldnt stop making many dishes with them..Finally here comes my version of sambar mini idly which we enjoyed having today for our dinner..This tomato sambar i prepared to soak these cute idlis goes for a quick and easy preparation, just serve this sambar mini idly  topped with few drops of ghee, you will definitely enjoy this beautiful,addictive,filling and seriouly irresistible cute idlis..


2cups Idly Batter

For sambar:
1/2cup Toor dal
2nos Tomatoes
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1tsp Mustard seeds+urad dal
Few curry leaves
Oil
Salt

To roast & grind as spice powder:
1tsp Coriander seeds
1/4tsp Fenugreek seeds
2tbsp Coconut (grated)
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
3nos Dry red chillies

Roast and grind all the spices given for spice powder as fine powder and keep aside..Meanwhile take the toor dal,tomatoes,slit opened green chillies,turmeric powder and salt with enough water and pressure cook for 3-4hisses,once the steam gets released, add the spice powder as per need,bring everything to boil, finally temper the mustard seeds,urad dal and curry leaves and add to the boiling sambar,put off the stove..

Grease the mini idly plates with oil and pour enough idli batter and steam cook for about 10 minutes in idly cooker, once done remove carefully with a spoon, soak these mini idlies with sambhar topped with ghee and enjoy warm..
