Idli 65 recipe – leftover idli ideas- easy snack recipes

I have been cooking almost everyday without taking any breaks for the last couple of days. We are trying to have maximum of homemade and healthy food. The food has been really simple and quick. Though sometimes we do crave for some restaurant style, food which are high in fats and calories etc. But I have been trying to make it healthy, low fat and delicious too. So I have baked the idlis here instead of deep frying them.The snack was delicious. I am going to post such healthy and low fat recipes in my future posts. So do keep…

 

Oats paniyaram recipe — Oats recipes

I have never known paniyaram when I was in India.It was never made at our place though rarely something called appe was made. The iron appe pan was placed in the hot oil and the appe was cooked by deep frying. Later , when I came to Singapore, when we were invited to our friend’s place(the same friend where I had iced lemon tea for the first time), they served this dish and that was the first time I tasted this one. It was made with dosa batter. I loved the dish. Later my hubby’s friends who were bachelors also…

 

Idli milagai podi upma- Left over idli recipe

This is one of the recipes out of the countless recipes my mom used to make with the leftover idlis. I hardly have any leftovers.I usually make sixteen idlis and a few(the maximum my idly moulds along with a mini pan can hold). Its not difficult for the 4 of us to finish those for our breakfast. But I do look forward for having leftovers for trying out so many variations one can do with the leftovers. My dream came true(sounds ridiculous , I know) when I made for a get together one day and had plenty of leftovers. I…

 

Horsegram idlis–kollu idli recipe

Food blogging makes you try everything and make you aware of many things. Kollu or horsegram was totally unknown to me during my childhood. After reading its health benefits, I have bought it into regular use at my place. My friend had once given me kollu idlis long time back and I had loved it. I wanted to try it since then and so I did after a long time. My friend had made them by adding the ground kollu paste into the regular idli batter. They were soft and good. So you can do the same or else you…

 

Rava idli (with vegetables)

I have made this particular idlis so many times. I mean this is the basic recipe responsible for all the variations of idlis posted here before. Also I thought of posting this one as I took step by step pictures for the first time. We have always enjoyed this for our weekend dinners. Its easy to make too!! Notes- You can make it without the vegetables too. I have update dthe pictures of rava idlis without the vegetables.

 

Brown rice idlis

This is another experiment in my kitchen using brown rice. As I am not too comfortable consuming brown rice on its own, I use them in a different form because of its health benefits. If you are a regular reader of this blog, then you may know how I have used them. If you already havent seen, do check them out here. The idlis tasted the same as when made made with regular idli rice. They were supersoft and spongy and I was delighted because I have never managed to get this softness even in the regular idlis. *I used…

 

Soft and spongy Idlis- Easy Breakfast recipes- how to make idli batter

Well, I know many of you think that this is too simple a recipe to be included in a blog. You might have seen scores of idli recipes in atleast a thousand blogs. But then, am sure there are atleast a few like me who dont get perfect idlis all the time. Yes, no matter how many times I have changed the proportion of varieties of rice and lentils ,no matter the batter fermented beautifully unlike many, the idlis always turned into a heavy mass, of course edible, but could not be eaten with a grace. Then a friend of…

 

Instant idlis with cracked wheat and vegetables

At my place , we usually have a breakfast of instant oats, bread or fruits. Idlis and dosas are reserved for dinner during the weekends. And as you know,I do not always keep a huge stock of idli batter ready like most of the south Indians do, the instant ones comes to my rescue.That is when I made this variety of instant idlis using cracked wheat and vegetables. The cracked wheat I get in singapore is quite fine,only a tad bigger than sooji or semolina. So I could use it without any problem. But there are huge ones also, So…

 

Ragi Idli!!

Schools have re opened . My son started going to a small nearby playgroup. It was me who was more excited and nervous at the same time when he stepped into the tiny colourful classroom yesterday. I could see the happiness in his face when he saw the numerous toys and colourful pictures everywhere. He got lost in his own world along with the other kids and then suddenly amidst all the noise and excitement he looked at me and said ” I like this place”. I am still a bit nervous until he settles down soon in the new…
