Tomato Idly

This is something my mom used to make when I was a kid. Here is the recipe.

  1. Idly Batter - 2 cups (big)
  2. Tomato - 2
  3. Salt - only for tomato
  4. Green chillies - 1 (optional)
Take a microwave safe bowl, wash the tomatoes, put it in the bowl, microwave it for 2 to 3 mts. till its fully cooked. Let it cool and grind it adding required amount of salt (only for tomatoes) and green chillies. Add this to idly batter. Mix it well. Take the idly mould, spread some oil in it (preferably sesame oil) and pour the batter in the moulds and steam cook it for 15 to 18 mts. In order to see whether it is ready or not, use the back side of a spoon or knife or toothpick or match stick and insert it into the idly. It should come out clean when you take it, without any batter. This means the idly is ready to serve. Serve it with chutney or sambar
