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 I suggest that you pulse them in a spice grinder till it resembles the semolina/ sooji.

This is quite filling and tastes good , a very good option for weight watchers and for diabetic people too who have to avoid rice.
