Micro Vegetable Idli Recipe Card


Hindi: chawal
How many times have we thought rice is a blessing? We use it for holy purposes but we also can pressure up a quick pulao or khichdi when hunger pangs are drumming away! This is one grain that is about 98% percent digestible. In India we are familiar with Basmati, Patna or brown rice but it is also available as Italian Rice and Glutinous Rice which is popular in Chinese and Japanese cuisines.

Prep Time : 8-10 hour

Cook time : 11-15 minutes

Ingredients for Micro Vegetable Idli Recipe

  • Parboiled Rice 1 cup

  • Split Black gram skinless 1/2 cup

  • Salt to taste

  • Carrot grated 1 medium

  • French beans chopped 4-5

  • Cauliflower grated 2-3 florets

  • Green capsicum seeded and chopped 1/2 medium

  • Oil 2 tablespoons

  • Black peppercorns crushed 15-20

  • Fresh coriander leaves chopped 2 tablespoons


Step 1

Wash and soak the rice and urad dal separately for at least four hours. Drain and grind dal to a fine paste and rice to a coarse paste using very little water. Mix both the pastes and add sufficient water to make a batter of dropping consistency.

Step 2

Add salt and allow it to ferment for four to five hours or overnight, covered, in a warm place. Add the vegetables to the fermented batter. Mix well. Lightly grease the idli moulds with oil. Pour a spoonful of batter into each mould. Garnish with crushed black peppercorns and coriander leaves.

Step 3

Keep a cupful of water along with the idli stand in the microwave oven, cover and cook on Microwave HIGH (100%) for four minutes. Allow standing time of five minutes before serving.
