This dish I prepared after seeing Priya's Vegetable Idli.Only thing is I used Idli Rava instead of the normal Upma Rava.Here's the recipe
Idli Rava:1 cup
Mixed veggies(carrot,peas,potato,corn,onion):1/2cup cubed
Ginger:1/2 inch chopped
Chana dal:1/2 tspn
You can steam the idli rava a bit to avoid the hardening of idlis and also reduce the coarseness.In a bowl mix some oil with the rava and blend it.When you squeeze them they should be able to hold their shape.It is similar to making of puttu dough. Otherwise add more oil.To this add mixed chopped veggies and ginger,salt,pepper and buttermilk and mix well. The batter should be of idli consistency.Otherwise add more buttermilk/water as per taste & sourness.
In a pan heat oil and add mustard.As it splutters add dals and pour this seasoning to the batter and mix well.Pour spoonful of batter into greased idli vessels.Steam cook in a pressure/Idli cooker for about 20 minutes. Serve hot with chutney.
