Ready in: 40 min
Yields: Serves 3 people 1 cup of oats and 1 cup of suji

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup fine suji or rava cream of wheat
  • 1/2 cup fresh curd
  • 1-2 teaspoon ginger-green chili paste
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 7-8 beans, finely chopped

  • 1/2 teaspoon chana dal
  • 5-6 curry leaves

How to prepare the idli

  • In a pan dry roast rava (suji) and oats together till it smells good and color changes to light brown. Let it cool down.
  • Grind or blend to a fine flour.
  • Take this powder in a vessel, add curd and salt, stir very well to prepare batter without forming lumps. The batter should have medium consistency. Let it sit for 5-6 minutes. In this time rava absorbs the water and batter thickens.
  • Chop all vegetables, prepare ginger-green chili paste and keep it ready.
  • In a pan heat oil or ghee. Splutter mustard seeds, add curry leaves and ginger-green chili paste. Saute till raw smell disappears.
  • Add all the vegetables to the pan. Let them cook for 4-5 minutes in low flame. (or you can use parboiled or steamed vegetables).
  • Add this vegetable mixture to the prepared batter. Mix well. Add water if required to prepare the semi thick (medium consistency) batter which is neither too thick nor thin.
  • Grease idli stand with oil, heat water in the steamer.
  • Pour the batter in the greased idli moulds,place the mould or cavity in the steamer, cover and steam it for 10-15 minutes. (You can check by inserting toothpick in the idlis. If it comes out clean then idlis are done, if not steam some more time).
  • Allow these idlis to stand for some minutes. Then remove.
  • Serve hot with sauce, sambar or chutney of your choice.

Notes

  • I have used greens of onions in this recipe which is purely optional.
  • You can simply prepare batter using oats, suji and curd and skip adding vegetables which makes oats-suji idli without vegetables.
  • You can add cashews too.
  • I used quaker oats in this recipe you can use any cooking or rolled oats.
  • You can even use other vegetables like peas, cabbage, capsicum etc.
  • To make your idli more fluffy and soft you can add 1/2 tsp of baking soda or eno just before making idlis.
  • You can dry roast oats and suji, make powders and keep it in air tight containers. Use this powder to make idli whenever necessary.
