Cake Idly

                 This recipe i learnt from my mother and its one of the mom's recipe which i like a lot.Last week my hubby asked me y i didn't prepare this recipe for a long time.Then only i realised that i didn't prepare it for a long while.Then yesterday i had a mood of preparing it and i finally did it.

Ingredients :

Idly batter 2 1/2 cup(3 r 4 days older)
Grated coconut 2 tbsp
Coriander leaves(finely chopped) 1 tbsp
Curry leaves few
Ginger(grated) 1/2 inch
Green chillies(chopped) 3-4 nos
Cooking soda 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste

Grinding :

Channa dal 2 1/2 tbsp
Moong dal 2 1/2 tbsp

Seasoning :

Mustard seeds 1/4 tsp
Urad dal 1 tsp
Oil 2-3 tbsp

Method :

1.Soak channa dal and moong dal together for 45mins to 1hr.Then grind in the mixy like coconut chutney consistency.(if u touch and see you should be able to feel the dal here and there)

2.Now take the idly batter and add finely chopped coriander leaves,curry leaves and grated ginger.

3.Then add the grated coconut.

4.Now add grinded dal paste.

5.Then do all the seasoning to be done and add to the batter.

6.Now add cooking soda and required salt and mix the batter well.Now grease the rice container with the oil (which we use to cook rice while keeping in cooker) and mixed batter.

7.Now steam cook the idly in cooker for about 15-20mins.If u wont know whether is batter is cooked,then insert a knife and see whether the batter is sticking to the knife.If its sticking means keep for few more minutes else the idly is ready.

8.Now allow the idly to come to room temparature and cut the idly to your desired shapes.

9.Now serve with idly podi and enjoy the idly.

Note :

1.Container used for keeping the batter in the cooker should have enough space because once the batter is cooked it will raise and come up .
2.You can increase or decrease the grated coconut and chopped coriander leaves to suit your taste buds.
3.Salt i added only for the dal and coconut as is the batter is already having salt.
4.In the final stage only i added cooking soda and immediately i poured the batter inside the container.
5.Do not use idly plate because the idly will become hard.

Nice and interesting recipe .Btw -U must clean mushrooms (black spots) gently in a bowl of water,rinse it in fresh water and pat it dry with a clean towel.Never soak the mushrooms.
Hope this helps you .Thank you for liking my mushroom gravy. Have a good day
