We all have heard about normal idli…they r soft,spongy and very healthy as they r steamed..today I have made a twist in the normal idli and stuffed it with caramelised coconut which enhance its taste to perhaps 10 times the normal idlis
Yield / Serves
Urad dal 2 cups
Rice 3 cups
Grated coconut 1 cup
Sugar 3/4 cup
Cardamom powder 1/4 tsp
Soak urad dal and rice for at least 5-6 hrs
Wash them properly and grind them into a not so fine paste rather it should be coarsely grinded...add salt to it and check consistency....it shouldn't be very flowy but shouldn't be very hard either...let it ferment for 8-10 hrs
Take a non stick pan..add grated coconut and sugar and cook them till the sugar gets caramelised and changes colour...
Add cardamom powder and mix well..switch off the gas
Heat water in idli cooker...now grease the idli moulds with oil..
Place 1 tsp of batter in each idli mould....now place 1 tsp of caramelised coconut over it
Again place 1 tbsp batter over it and cover it..make all the idlis like this...
Steam for about 15 mins in high flame...
Serve hot with sambar n chutney
