Navratri Special Samak Idli

Navratri Special Samak Idli
Spicy samak rice idlis are very healthy and delicious.  Mostly vrat dishes are made with lots of oil. Enjoy this no oil dish for this navaratri. Oil is only used for greasing idli tray's.
  • 1 cup of samak rice
  • 1 cup of beaten curd
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 finely chopped green chili
  • 1 tbsp of grated ginger
  • ½ cup of grated carrot
  • 1 tsp Eno Powder (optional)
•Wash and soak the samak rice with salt in curd for 2 hrs.
•In a blender take chopped green chili and grated ginger and pour half of the batter in it, and blend it till chili and ginger is grinded. Now add the rest of batter to it and blend it again in to the blender.   
Take out this samak idli batter in a bowl and ferment it for overnight or at least 6 to 7 hrs.
•Now add carrot and mix well. Add Eno and stir it with gentle hand.
•Grease the idli mould. I have used the oil in this recipe only for greasing idli mould otherwise it is oil free.
•Pour 1 big spoon of batter in each idli mould.  This batter is enough to make 12 idlis.
•Take one glass of water in rice cooker or any vessel.  As the water starts boiling, keep this idli stand in it. And close the lid.
•Steam it for 10 minutes.
•To check the idlis , insert a tooth pick and take out, if it is clean, it is done.
•Let it cool completely.
•After getting it cool completely, unmould it with the help of spoon.
