Carrot Peas Idli

Even though idli is staple food, people kids and even the adults also get bored with it. We have to spice it up with interesting but simple variations. This carrot peas idli is one such idea to make idli colorful and tempting.


1 cup
Grated Carrot
2 tbsp
2 tbsp
1 tesp
Mustard Seeds
¼ tesp
Urad Dal
¼ tesp
Split Bengal gram dal / Channa dal
½ tesp
Curry Leaves
1 spring
1. Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and wait for popping. Then add urad dal, channa dal and curry leaves. Saute for a minute.
2. Then add grated carrot and fry till raw smell goes off.
3. Now add the peas and fry for a minute. Allow it to cool down.
4. Grease idli plate and place one table spoon of this mixture on every idli depression (kuzhi). Pour idli batter above this mixture and steam cook for 8-10 mins.
5. Allow it to cool down and scoop out the idli carefully using spoon.
  Colorful carrot peas idli is ready. Serve it with coconut chutney.

1. You can use fresh green peas directly. But if you want to use dry peas soak it for 5-6 hrs and cook for one whistle.
2. You can keep aside some peas while cooking peas recipes.
