Kallya Sandhan

                             Usually we use the white urad  for making idlis  , Sandhan ,dosa or appos . You may also the black urad ( Urad with its skin ) for making similar dishes . this is more nutritious and fibre rich .  Even though it may not score on the appearances it is definitely more power packed than the regular idlis  !  So lets try out the recipe :-

Ingredients :-

  1. Black Urad – 1 cup
  2. Boiled rice – 2 cups 
  3. Raw rice – 1 cup 
  4. Methi seeds – 1 tsp 
  5. Jeera – 1 tsp 
  6. Salt to taste 

Method :-

  • Soak the urad and the methi together for  2 hours .
  • Soak the rices for 5 -6 hours .
  • Grind the dal in a mixer –  preferably in a grinder  till you get a smooth  thick batter 
  • Then grind the  rices to a coarse  paste .
  • The batter should have a thick consistency. 
  • Mix both the pastes  in a large container , add the salt and leave to ferment overnight.
  • Add  the jeera .
  • Mix the batter well  & pour into a greased vessel  .
  • Steam cook for about 10 -12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  • When a little cooler de-mould and cut into  desired pieces .

Serve hot with your choice of  Sambhar , chutneys or any spicy dish .
 You can also make idlis with the same batter like my friend Chitra Kamath  has done !
