Instant Tomato Idli

This time I choose Instant dosa and idli theme under BM 34. For this theme, I prepared Tomato idli, which made with tomato puree and semolina. The idlis come out very well and look so delicious. You can serve this idli as snack with green chutney or coconut chutney or even serve with sambhar as side dish. 

Preparation Time: 15 Minutes
Cooking Time: 25 Minutes
Servings: 4
Category: South Indian Cuisine

1 1/2 Cup Semolina
2 Tomatoes Paste
1/2 Cup Sour Curd
2 Tbsp. Rice Flour
1 Tbsp. Coconut, finely chopped
1 Green Chili, chopped
1 Pckt Fruit Salt
Salt to Taste
2 Tbsp. Coriander Leaves, chopped

For Tempering
1 Tbsp. Oil
1 Tsp. Mustard Seeds
7-8 Curry Leaves
1/2 Tsp. Toor Dal
Pinch of Asafoetida

Sieve the semolina and rice flour together.
Add salt, tomato paste, coconut, green chili and coriander leaves.
Heat the oil in tadka pan and add tempering ingredients, when they starts splutter remove from the flame. Add tempering into semolina bowl and mix it.
Add sour curd and fold it until to smooth consistency.
Grease the idli mould using ghee and keep ready with steamer.
Add eno and mix it and immediately pour the batter into idli mould to steam for 15 -18 minutes.
Remove the idlis and serve hot with sambhar or green chutney as snack.

Add water for smooth batter, if required. You can add chop onion too for more flavorful idli.
