Cornmeal Oats Soya Vegetable Idli

Cornmeal oats soya vegetable idli.
Soft and delicious idli made of Soyabean flour, ground oats, cornmeal and vegetables. I have used broccoli, green peas, sweet corn and carrot. You can use any vegetable of your choice like capsicum, cabbage, beans, bell pepper etc.

Not only healthy but its very easy and quick recipe. You don’t need to soak, grind or ferment the batter. If you have ground oats or oats flour ready then you can make it anytime.
I have already shared three different flavoured idli recipes on this blog.

1. Green moong idli

2. Chutney idli

3. Barnyard millet fried idli

Along with oats and semolina I have used cornmeal in this idli.
Unlike flour made from wheat grains, corn meal does not contain gluten, so it makes for a safe cooking ingredient for those suffering from celiac disease or gluten intolerance, according to Colorado State University. Eating corn meal also offers some health benefits because it serves as a source of essential nutrients.

Did you know March 30 is celebrated as World Idli Day?
For the last three years, March 30 has been celebrated as World Idli Day. The delicious south Indian steamed rice cake is often eaten for breakfast along with piping hot sambhar and a variety of tasty chutneys.

Earlier I have used only semolina or suji in idli. But this time added oats and cornmeal, oats and Soyabean flour to make it healthy and for a different taste. But if you don’t have these flour then you can make it with semolina and oats or only semolina.

Recipe

Cornmeal – 1/4 cup

Oats – 1/4 cup, ground

Soyabean flour – 1/4 cup

Semolina or suji – 1/4 cup

Broccoli – 1/2 cup, chopped

Green peas – 1/3 cup

Sweet corn – 1/3 cup

Carrot – 1, grated

Cilantro or coriander leaves – handful, chopped

Ginger – 1/2 inch piece, grated

Green chilli – 1 – 2, finely chopped

Rai or mustard seeds – 1/2 teaspoon

Curry leaves – 12 – 15

Oil – 2 tablespoon

Salt to taste

Cumin powder – 1 teaspoon

Curd – 1/2 cup

Fruit salt – 1 teaspoon

Water – 3/4 cup or as require

Method

1. In a bowl mix cornmeal, ground oats, soyabean flour and semolina or suji.

2. Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and let them splutter.

3. Add curry leaves, grated ginger and chopped green chilli. Fry for a minute.

4. Add all the vegetables. Add salt and cumin powder. Mix well.

5. Cover and cook on simmer for 4 – 5 minutes or till the vegetables become tender. Stir in between.

6. Now add all the flour and mix. Saute for a minute and remove from heat.
Let it cool down.

7. Add curd and 1/2 cup water. Mix well and add more water slowly to make a thick batter.

8. Cover and keep aside for 15 – 30 minutes.

9. Grease the idli moulds with oil.

10. Add fruit salt in the batter. Give a good stir and immediately pour the batter into the idli moulds.

11. Steam for 8 – 10 minutes in idli cooker. Insert a toothpick in the middle of a idli. It should comes out clean. I have made in microwave. In microwave it will take 6 – 7 minutes on full power.

12. Serve hot with any chutney. You may like some chutney recipes on this blog.
1. Mango sesame chutney

2. Water chestnut chutney

3. Onion tomato chutney or dip

4. Peanut chutney or dip

Notes

1. If you don’t have Soyabean flour and oats then you can make it with only semolina. Use 1 cup semolina or suji and skip oats powder and Soyabean flour.
2. Use chilli according to your spice tolerance.

Batter Up With Sujata

I am Sujata Roy. A homemaker, a doting mother to two beautiful grown up children, a blogger, a passionate cook and lastly a foodie. Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!
