Idli Sandwich………….An innovative sandwich..
3 cups Idli Mavu (GROUND RICE FOR IDDLY )
1 cup Potato curry
a pinch of cooking soda
for Potato stuffing:
2 large Potatoes, boiled
1/3 cup boiled fresh/frozen Green Peas
1 medium Onion,finely chopped
3-4 Green chillies, chopped fine
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tbsp Chana dal
1 tsp Urad dal
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
2 tbsp Coriander leaves, finely chopped
8-10 Curry leaves, finely chopped
salt to taste
2 tsp Oil
to prepare potato stuffing:
Mash the peeled and boiled potatoes and keep it aside.
Heat oil in a pan,crackle mustard seeds and fry chana dal,urad dal till brown.
Add chopped green chillies,curry leaves and onions and fry until they turn pinkish in color.
Add boiled fresh/frozen peas and fry well.
Add turmeric,salt and mashed potato to it and give a nice stir and cook it for a couple of minutes.
Add coriander to it and mix properly and keep it aside to cool down.
Make small gooseberry sized balls out of the mixture and flatten them and keep aside.
To prepare stuffed Idlis:
Take out the required portion of Idli batter and add a pinch of cooking soda to a spoonful of water and mix it well and add to Idli batter and mix nicely.
Grease the idli plates and switch on the steamer with enough water. I use my cooker and steam without whistle(weight).
Pour 1 tbsp of idli batter into each impression and place the flattened potato stuffing and pour 2-3 tbsp idli batter to cover the filling. Stack up all the idli plates and steam for 10-12 mins.Rest it for another 3-4 mins.
Dip a clean wide spoon in water and remove the idlis from the plate. Keep dipping the spoon in water in between which helps in
taking out the idli easily.
Keep them in hot box or serve directly on to a plate. Always serve these idlis hot.
