Today is the last day of blogging  marathon. I am so happy to be a part of this marathon. Thanks Valli for organising such a wonderful marathon. 

My friend Preethi told that she will make Idli with green moong dal. I thought I will also make but i had my own doubt , my husband and kids wont like the colour. So i made this Idli but served as Kothu Idli.  They liked so much.

How to make Idli

  • Soak the green moong dal for 1 hour.
  • In a mixer add green chili, salt and moong dal and grind.
  • Before making idlis add eno salt and make idlis.

Onion - 1 big size

Tomato - 2
Sambhar powder - 1 tbsp

salt to taste

garam masala - 1/2 tbsp

Oil, mustard seeds , urad dhall, curry leaves for tempering
