Bele Idly / Toordal Idly


Toordal - 1& 1/2 cups (soaked for at least 6 hours, makes 12-14 idlies)
Onion (one small), cilantro leaves (one handful), green chilies - 2 all of them chopped finely.
Carrot - 1 grated.
Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon.


Soak toordal for at least 6 hours, by adding little water grind them to coarse paste.
Then add finely chopped onion, cilantro, chilies, grated carrot and cumin. Add salt and mix well.
Add more water if required to make it to medium consistency. Batter should not be too thick or too thin.
Smear little oil on to idly pans, pour the batter and steam for about 15 minutes.
Allow the pan to cool a little so the idlies come out easily from the pan.
I like to serve with little bit ghee and coconut chutney. Enjoy!
