Stuffed Idli

I wanted to try something different for breakfast. So tried stuffed Idli and it turned out to be very tasty. This would be a very healthy diet, since I have used brinjals as the stuffing which has lot of iron. The calorie intake would be less if you end up eating the same amount of stuffed idlis as you eat normal idlis, since the amount of batter is less in each stuffed idli as compared to normal idli and this can be eaten without any side dish.

Brinjal - 100 grams
Onions – 50 grams
Tomatoes – 30 grams
Coriander powder – 10 grams
Garam masala powder – 5 grams
Chilly powder – 10 grams
Oil – 10 grams
Mustard – 4 grams
Turmeric powder and salt – to taste
Idli batter – 250 grams

  • Chop the brinjals and soak them in water for about 5 minutes.
  • Finely chop the onions and tomatoes.
  • In a kadai pour oil. When the oil is hot add mustard.
  • Once mustard splutters add the onions and fry until onions turn translucent.
  • Add the brinjals and tomatoes. Add salt and turmeric powder. Mix well and cover and cook until the brinjals are cooked.
  • Add the coriander powder, garam masala powder and chilly powder. Mix well and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Grease the idli plate with little oil. Pour 1 spoon of idli batter. On top place 1 spoon of the brinjal filling. Cover the brinjal filling with another 1 or 2 spoons of idli batter.
  • Repeat this for all the plates. Steam the idlis for about 8-10 minutes.

Stuffed idli is ready!!! We can also replace the stuffing with vegetables of our choice like potatoes, cauliflowers etc..
