Greengram Idli

Earlier i have tried soft idlis with sprouted greengrams here, this time i simply tried this super spongy idli with soaked greengrams..Serve this idlis with spicy gravies or coconut chutney, am damn sure you will have a protein packed dinner or breakfast..We just loved this nutritious idlis with brinjal sambar,obviously we had a filling and satisfying dinner..But the colour of this idli will be mildly green and quite different, apart from that these idlis tastes exactly like usual idlis...Sending this idli to my own event CWS-Moong Beans..

1cup Idli Rice
1cup Greengrams (soaked overnite)
1/2cup Urad dal
1/4tsp Fenugreek seeds

Soak separately idli rice and urad dal with fenugreek seeds for atleast 4hrs...Grind the urad dal with fenugreek seeds as fluffy batter,now grind the greengrams and soaked idli rice  together as bit coarse paste..mix together the urad dal batter and greengram-rice batter with enough salt and keep overnite for fermentation..

Grease the idli plates with oil, take a ladle full of idli batter, pour them in idli plates..cook them in idli cooker r pressure cooker for 10 minutes... serve hot with any choice of chutney..

I see the porous soft idlis and think why has it not occured to me until now, that whole grams can be used in a staple breakfast that makes it more nutritious!

wow! gotta try this! idli is a staple breakfast at my house which appears at the table at least twice a week. In fact I just had some now. Lovely variation. Also, can I just grind some soaked green grams to my already ground idli batter? I use 1:2 ratio for urad dal : rice.
