Dhal Idlis And Awards

This idly is something which is very healthy and can make it instantly..not that instant as the dhal's take time to soak..Only thing is you can prepare this as soon as you grind the Dhal's . No fermenting needed. No rice or urad dhal required for this idly. You can add any veggies to this. Great for kids and for us too.
Ingredients:
ಕಡಲೆ ಬೇಳೆ /Bengal gram dhal - 1 cup
ತೊಗರಿ ಬೇಳೆ /Thoor Dhal - 1/2 cup
ಹೆಸರು ಬೇಳೆ /Moong Dhal - 1/2 cup
ಸೊಪ್ಪು /Green leaves / Dill - 1 cup
ಈರುಳ್ಳಿ /Onion - 1 medium (chopped finely)
ಹಸಿಮೆಣಸಿನಕಾಯಿ /Green chilly - 4 nos.
ಶುಂಠಿ /Ginger - small quantity
ಬೆಳ್ಳುಳ್ಳಿ /Garlic - 3-4 flakes
ಕೆಂಪು ಮೆಣಸಿನಕಾಯಿ /Red chilly - 4 nos.
ಜೀರಿಗೆ /Cumin seeds - 1 Tb spoon
ಕರಿಬೇವು /Curry leaves - small quantity
ಉಪ್ಪು /Salt to taste
ಎಣ್ಣೆ /Oil
Method:
  • Wash and soak all three Dal's in water for 2-3 hours along with cumin seeds and red chillies.
  • Grind them to a smooth paste along with ginger-garlic, green chillies and curry leaves (Do not add too much water)
  • Add chopped onions , dill (or any greens) and salt to the paste. Mix well.
  • Grease idly plates, pour this batter and steam for 5 min.

  • Dal idly is healthy and ready to be served.
  • Serve it with any of the chutneys or kurma or sambar or you can eat by itself.
  • I have served mine with simple kurma.

My Dhal Idli goes to Lentils Mela hosted by Ashwini..
I'm also sending this recipe to Laurie's "My Legume Love Affair" started by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook.
PS:
  • You can add and greens like Methi, spinach, coriander leaves..
  • You can also add any veggies to it.
  • Adjust the spice accordingly.
  • You can add any other dhal to this.
Now, its time for Awards.. Nithya Praveen has passed me these beautiful awards. I am very humbled to receive them. Thank You so much.
I would like to pass them to all the blogger's who take time and visit my blog. Please feel free to take them.

Deepa has passed me this beautiful and lovely award..Thank You dear..

The award states that:

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement (? big word, lol). Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

Its really hard to choose just eight. There are many bloggers who deserve it. But since i have to do, i would love to pass this award to:
