Avare Kaalu Masala Idli

Some days ago, I was discussing with another food blogger Niya's World about masala idli that I used to eat in Chamarajanagar. Call it coincidence or whatever, very next day Meena came out with Avare Kaalu Idli following a recipe from a paper cutting she had. I found its taste almost like the Masala Idlis I was talking about.
Those who don't like plain idlis may try this. Avare Kaalu is optional, though we had it in stock and we added it as per recipe.


Rice -2 cups
Urad Daal - 1 cup
Blanched Avare Kaalu - 1/2 cup
Chana Daal - 1/2 cup soaked in water for 2-3 hours.
Coconut - 1/4 cup chopped into small bits
Ginger - 2" piece chopped
Coriander Leaves - A handful chopped
Curry Leaves(Optional) - A handful chopped
Salt to taste

Make idli batter grinding soaked rice and urad daal as per recipe here
Coarsely mash the avare kaalu and add along with other ingredients to the batter.
Steam idlis as usual.
Serve with chutney of your choice.
