Broken Wheat And Carrot Idli..

Broken Wheat and Carrot Idli.. To cook this idli it was there in my wish list from a very long time and i use to postponed it every time or use to forget to soak the broken wheat... But last week i cooked this idli for a breakfast and good things was that i took the pictures also to post it on my blog :) Actually i was having a problem to take them out from the moulds, but i still manage to take them out in a better shape.. I served this idli with mix vegetable sambar and coconut chutney.. You can even eat them without any side dish, they were very soft and tasting simply awesome and very filling too..
 
 
Preparation time: 40minutes + 1 hour for fermenting
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Makes:12 dalia idlis.
 
Ingredients:
1 cup broken wheat
1/2 cup urad dal
1-2 tsp of salt
1/2 cup shredded carrot.
 
 
 
For Tempering
1/2tsp mustard seeds
1/4tsp channa dal
1/4tsp urad dal
5 to 6 curry leaves
1tbsp oil.
 
 
Cooking Method
Soak the urad dal and broken wheat separately for 30 mins. Grind the urad dal first into a smooth paste adding enough water. Transfer the urad dal batter to a large bowl. Drain the water from broken wheat before adding to urad dal paste since it absorbs a lot of water. Then add broken wheat, salt, carrot and mix well.
 
 
Set it aside for 1 hours. You can refrigerate the batter for later use if you wish.
Now make the tempering by adding all the tempering ingredients. Then add it to the idli batter and mix well once again. Make idlis as usual by pouring the batter into greased idli moulds and steaming on low flame for 12 to 15 mins.
The broken wheat idlis were soft and spongy and made a great breakfast!
