Mixed Vegetable Rawa Idly

Another post after a week. I was kinda running between doctor's office and home cos one of my twin is sick and she has stomach flu. This is something I hate and it takes more than 10 days for my girls to start eating properly. I learned this from Sripriya's blog and tried this one for my other twin. She was not actually excitied after seeing vegetables in Idly, but she tried one and she liked it. My husband really liked the new changes in regular rawa idly. I followed almost the same recipe of Sripriya but skipped few vegetables. Here is the recipe...

  1. Coarse Rawa - 2 cups
  2. carrots - 1 (shred it)
  3. Peas - 2 tbsp (I used frozen)
  4. Beans - 2 tbsp (finely chopped)
  5. Green chillies - 2 (acc to taste)
  6. Ginger -  a small piece
  7. Yogurt - 1 cup
  8. salt to taste
  9. turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  10. oil- 2 tsp
  11. mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  12. urad dhall - 1/2 tsp
  13. cashew nuts- few
  14. Eno salt- 2 tsp
Take a wide bowl, add rawa, yogurt, salt, turmeric powder and vegetables and mix well. Also add oil, eno salt and add water accordingly to get it like  idly batter. Let it sit for half an hour. when you are ready to make idly, pre heat oil, in a pan, splutter mustard seeds, add urad dhall and cashew nuts and fry it to golden brown. Also add green chillies and ginger and fry it and pour it on top of the batter.  Now spray the idly moulds, add the batter and steam cook it for 10 to 12 mts.  Garnish it with coriander leaves.
