Try out these instant mini idlis. No grinding and fermenting required. This recipe comes really handy when you have guests.
Semolina ..........1 cup
Sour yogurt ... 1/2 cup
Baking soda..... a pinch
Salt ................... to taste
Eno ..................3/4 th tsp.
Lime juice or vinegar
1. Mix the semolina, yogurt, baking soda, salt adding a little water to a thick consistency.
2. Put eno and squeeze a little lime juice or vinegar over it. Mix it well into the batter.(Remember that eno should be added to each portion of the batter seperately just before steaming the idlis.)
3. Grease the mini idli mould and pour the batter with a small spoon.
4. Steam them for about 10 minutes.
5. Remove from the mould and sprinkle podi (dal powder) and serve as a cocktail snack.
You can also serve plain idlis with sambar.

I love mini idlis.. they are so cute. Usually I make the mini ones to stir fry them a podi. I've yet to try making instant idli at home as usually I make them with fermented batter.ReplyDelete
Try these. I started making them in Brazil where the Indian groceries were not available. This recipe came handyDelete
I love making these no fuss idlis especially when kids suddenly want to have idlis.. love these cute small molds and baby idlis as I will love to call these.. best to make masala Idlis and can be served as snacks.ReplyDelete
Yes dear .. kids will surely love them. These podi idlis area big hit in the parties.Delete
