Kambu (Bajra/Pearl millet) rava idli


2 cups broken pearl millet
2 cups idli rava
1 cup blackgram dal
Salt to taste
1/2 tbsp pepper
1/2 tbsp cumin seeds

Soak the pearl millet and idli rava with water just enough to dip. Also soak the blackgram dal seperately for 45 minutes.

Grind the dal to a smooth paste with water as required. Add the soaked pearl millet and idli rava. Also add the pepper and cumin seeds and grind it for 2-3 minutes. Mix salt and allow this mix to ferment overnight.

Grease the idli plates with little oil and pour in the batter. Steam for 7-10 minutes and check if the idli is done. 

Serve hot with chutney and sambar. The addition of pepper and cumin seeds makes it taste a bit like Kanchipuram idlis.

** This version has equal portion of idli rava and broken pearl millet. For idlis with just broken pearl millet please refer to my earlier recipe by clicking here.

**The batter needs to be a slightly thinner than usual idli batter ..else the idli would be very dry.
