Whole moong idli


2 1/2 cups boiled rice
1/2 cup raw rice
1 cup blackgram dal
Fistful of poha
1 cup whole moong (payaru)
Salt to taste
Bit of ginger paste
Green chillies as per taste

Soak the rice,poha and blackgram dal seperately for 4-5 hours. Grind to smooth batter, add salt and ferment overnight. Also soak the moong overnight.

Grind the moong with ginger and green chillies next day. Add it to the idli batter and mix well. Pour into idli plates and steam for 8-10 minutes. Check by piercing a knife. If it comes out clean, it is cooked or else cook for few more minutes.

Serve with chutney/sambar.
