Stuffed Masala Idli

Idlis are the most popular breakfast dish from south of India. It's also very popular in north of India as the food makes all of us one. I experiment a lot with Idli recipes. Idlies can be made in several different ways such as authentic style rice idli, stuffed idli, methi idli, masala idli and so on.... here is one of my idli recipe.


Fermented idli batter - 3 cups
Red Peanuts - 2 tblspoon
Cashewnuts - 5-8
Almonds                      - 5-8
Raisins - 10-12
Achari Masala - 1 tblspoon
Corn Kernels              - 1 tblspoon
Carrot - 2 tblspoon (Finely chopped)
Mix Peppers - 2 tblspoon (Finely chopped)
Fresh Coriander - 1 tblspoon
Salt                           - To taste              


Take a pan and dry roast peanuts, cashewnuts, raisins and almonds in it until they start leaving their oil. Now finely chop all the nuts except raisins.

Chop carrots, fresh coriander and capsicums finely. Add in the corn kernels.

Now mix Achari masala and salt to the nut mix.

Now mix together the nuts and veggies.

Beat the Idli batter well and add the salt to your taste. Remember that we have added the salt to stuffing as well.

I've steamed my idlies in microwave steamer this time but they can be steam the authentic gas steamer way.
Refer the picture to stuff the idlies. first layer idli batter on the idli mould and place 1 tspoon on the batter then layer it again thinly over the stuffing.use the spoon to make it even.

Steam the idlies for 7-10 minutes depending on your microwave temperature or gas steamer.
Stuffed idlies are ready to tuck in as breakfast or evening snack with chutney and hot tea.
