Oats 2 Cup
Semolina 1 Cup
Baking powder 1/2 Teaspoon
Salt To taste
Yogurt 1/2 Cup
Onion 1 medium size cut fine
Water 1 Cup approx (add more or less to form a thick batter)
Corn 1/2 Cup
Peas 1/2 cup
Green chilli 2 cut finely
Ginger 1/2 inch grated
1 tsp sugar
Mustard seeds 1 tsp
Urad Dal 1 tsp
Fried cashew for garnish
Allow to get golden.
Lightly sauté the onion, green chili and ginger.
Add the veggies and the semolina. Keep the flame on a low and sauté till the semolina is well coated.
Do not skip this step, what it does is the semolina gets a bit toasted and don't stick to each other.
This helps in getting a much more fluffy idly.
Add oats, baking powder, sugar, pepper ,salt and chopped coriander.
Now add the yogurt and mix well, slowly add water to form a batter.
Make sure to not add too much water at a time as the batter can get too watery and they won't form idyls. Now allow the batter to rest for 20 min (resting the batter is very important)
Steam for 15/20 min or till fully cooked.
