MW Podi Idli

My second post for this week's blogging marathon is this Microwave Podi Idli coz my theme for this week is Microwave cooking. Podi idli doesnt need any introduction and South Indians love these tiny steamed rice cakes tossed with spice powder.Mini idlis are my kids favourite dinner, most of the time i'll serve them simply with sambar but they do love mini idlis as podi idlis.Recently i started experimenting with red rice and prepared red rice idly batter few days back.

Obviously i tried this microwave mini idlies with MW idli plate which i bought during my last trip to India.These mini idli plates are seriously very handy and makes ur life easier if you feel like having these tiny idlies.Within a minute, these microwave mini idlies will gets ready and the podi idli preparation take almost less than 2-3minutes. This podi idli takes altogether just 4 minutes to get ready, yes very much less time than the stove top one na..Instead of using usual idly podi, i used Flaxseeds Paruppu Podi for making this microwave version of podi idli.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#31.Sending to my own event Healthy Diet - Cooking with Wholegrains..


1+1/2cups Red rice
1/2cup Parboiled rice
1/2cup Whole urad dal (without skin)
1/2tsp Fenugreek seeds
Salt

Wash and soak the red rice,parboiled rice and whole urad dal with fenugreek seeds separately for atleast 4 hours.

Grind as bit coarse batter with enough water in a grinder and add enough salt, mix well and keep it for fermentation.


While making the idli, grease the microwave idli plate and pour a teaspoon of idli batter,cook it for a minute in high power.

Once done,remove the mini idlies from the pan and keep aside.

For podi idli:
3tbsp Flaxseeds Paruppu Podi
2tbsp Oil
1tsp Mustard seeds+urad dal
Few curry leaves

Take the oil with mustard seeds,urad dal and curry leaves in a microwave safe bowl, heat it for 1-2 minutes.

Add the mini idlies, paruppu podi to the tempered spices, toss everything.

Keep again the bowl in the microwave oven and cook for an another minute in medium power.

Serve immediately.
