60th Republic Day of India and Instant Tiranga Idli/ Tri coloured Idly


 India celebrates her 60th Republic Day today.  I woke up  with this song (S was listening to it), its been ages I heard this song and it bought back many memories. I made tiranga idli to mark the Republic day .This is very fast and simple.There is no need for fermentation and waiting for 12 hrs to relish your idlis. These are instant. can be made whenever you feel like having idlis or when u have unexpected guests.

1 cup bombai ravva/sooji/cream of rice
1/2 cup curd/yogurt
1/2 tsp baking soda
little more than 1/2 tsp of lemon juice
Salt to taste
1/8 cup water( if needed)
1/2 cup grated carrots
1/2 cup of mixture of peas, cilantro, pudina, 1 green chilly

  • Mix together bombai ravva, curd, baking soda, lemon juice, salt and mix well. Add water if needed.
  • Grease idli plates and pour the batter in them. Garnish with carrots on one end and the green pea mixture on the other, leaving the middle white. 
  • Pour 1 cup water at the bottom of the cooker, place the idli stand in it, close the lid and leave on high for 2 mins and then on medium and cook for 11 mins.
  • Switch off stove, let stand for 5 mins, wet a spoon and remove the idlis from idli paltes.
  • Serve with chutney of your choice or sambar. I served mine with Nellore fish pulusu( Nellore fish curry).
  • Enjoy!!!
