Its always good to enjoy seasonal vegetables /fruits. And now it’s the perfect season to enjoy pumpkin.
Pumpkin idly is a healthy, gluten-free, vegan breakfast which is easy to make and taste delicious, that is made from grated sweet pumpkin with rice rava. These idly have intense flavours, fluffy texture and moist.
- One cup rice rava/Akki Tari
- One and a half cup grated sweet pumpkin
- Half cup chopped coriander leaves
- Finely chopped onion 2tsp
- Two tbsp grated fresh coconut
- Half a tsp cumin seeds
- Green chillies two no
- Few curry leaves
- Salt to taste
Take one cup of rice rava wash and soak it with 2 cups of water for 1hr. After soaking for an hour squeeze the rava and transfer into another big bowl.
Then add grated pumpkin (make sure you use a small hole grater for grating the pumpkin) fresh coconut and all other ingredients.
After you mix all the ingredients, leave the batter/mix for 10min. So that the pumpkin leaves little moist.
Now grease the idly mould with oil or ghee, and take a handful of the mix and place the mixture in the idly plate and press it gently to give a good shape idly, since we are not using any flour it’s important to give a shape by pressing or it will spread unevenly .
Now place the prepared idly mould in the idly cooker or steamer and steam for 15min.
Let it cool for 2-3min, a post that we can take the idly out from the plate.
Enjoy hot pumpkin idly with ghee, coconut chutney/tomato chutney. (chutney recipes are in the blog already )
