A lazy weekend brunch, of IDLEEZ-(EASY IDLIS / IDLIS WITH EASE!) is something that satisfies and soothes, I am giving you the recipe for exactly that kind of thing, and it's sooooo easy!
The Idleez are ready in minutes, are soft and spongy , and look real cute, recipe of sambhar I am not including since all of you are experts at it, recipe of Spicy tomato rasam you can find here.
for the Idleez-
(makes 22 bite sized one's)
- Semolina/suji- 1/2 cup
- Sour curd- 3 tbsp.
- Soda-bi-carbonate- 1/2 tsp.
- Cashews/almonds- 2 tbsp.
- Desi ghee/clarified butter- 1 tsp.
- Salt to taste
Heat ghee in a skillet, add the broken cashews/almonds , roast till golden brown, add suji , dry roast , stirring continously till light creamy brown.
dry roasting the suji
Add the curd and enough water to make into a thick batter like consistency, add baking soda and salt.Grease cocktail idli stand(which is the same as a regular idli stand but the molds are much smaller, to give you bite-sized idlis) add 1 teaspoon of the batter into each little mold, steam for 10-15 minutes, serve with sambhar and rasam.
Another variation I love to do for a packed lunch/snack is - heat a tsp of oil, add mustard seeds and a few curry leaves, as well as juliennes of veg. like carrot, beans and capsicum some sliced onions and green chillies ,add idlis, toss around and pack it up for a healthy idleez tiffin/snack.
FEELING TOO LAZY FOR EVEN THIS ???- THEN USE THIS!!
