Moong Dal (Protein) Idli

Three to Four Idli's with a bowl full of Sambar and green chutney and a tumbler of filter coffee... this is what you will be served in South India for breakfast. 

This is one of the most nutritious meal of the day.  Tried making the below Idli which is very good source of protein & easy to digest.  Make this different version of healthy Idli's and enjoy!

Ingredients :

Yellow Moong dal - 1 cup
Green Chilli - 3        
Ginger grated - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Fruit salt (Eno) 1 pkt

For tadka:

Oil - tbsp
Rai-Jeera-Hing (asafoetida)
Boiled Sweet Corn - 1/4th Cup
Finely cut spinach - 1/2 cup


Soak Moong dal for  1 to 2 hours. Wash and add all ingredients up to salt and make a thick dough. Make the tadka and this to the Batter.  Put oil on the Idli mould and heat the Idli cooker with water.  Add the Eno salt to the batter and mix well.  Immediately put  batter in the mould and steam the Idli's for 10 minutes.  Serve hot with green chutney & Sambar.
