Nothing much to give more introduction about Idli's,there are plenty of varieties of Idli's to make. They are one of the healthy & nutritious steamed food as well as low fat.But in these recipe Idli's are made out of fine sooji mixed with yogurt ,carrots and green peas.


Roasted Semolina/sooji 2 cups
Yogurt 1cup
Oil 3 tbsps
1 carrot (grated)
1 tbsp roasted cashews
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp channa & urad dal for tempering
Green chillies 2 nos., grated ginger 1/4 tsp
springs of curry leaves
Finely chopped cilantro
Green peas(frozen) as needed for topping.
Salt as per taste


Roast the sooji in a pan for 2 minutes.Mix the yogurt to the sooji with grated carrot,ginger,green chilli,cilantro,roasted cashews.

Mix well by adding very little quantity of water as the batter should thick enough.
And for tempering,in a small saucepan sizzle the mustard seeds with channa dal and urad dal in oil.Add this to the above mixed batter.

Grease them with oil on a Idli plate,and steam the batter for about 10 minutes in a pressure cooker.Before steaming the batter,garnish the uncooked Idli's with frozen green peas and later steam them.
My serving in this portion makes about 10 to 12 Idli's.
