Very Easy
Quick idli in microwave


Number of serving: 4
1 pack rice Idli mix

1/4 cup chopped broccoli

1/4 cup chopped carrots

1/2 tsp minced ginger

1/2 green chilli

1tbsp cilantro

To serve

coconut chutney or ketchup or tomato chutney

Ingredients for coconut chutney

1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (I dry grind the coconut before making chutney)

1/4 cup buttermilk or add two tbsp water to yogurt

1/2 green chilli

1 tbsp chopped cilantro

salt as per taste

extra 1/2 cup hot water

no salt


  • Grease a 8 or 9″ square microwave safe dish. In a bowl mix the idli batter as per directions on the pack. Add chopped vegetables except cilantro.
  • Pour the batter in the prepared pan. Microwave it for 2 minutes. Remove, add 1/2 cup hot water on top and sprinkle chopped cilantro. The idli batter will absorb all the water. Microwave for 2 minutes. After 4 minutes it will look like this.
  • Microwave again for 3 minutes. If it seems wet in the center, cook for another 1 minute. (If it still look wet, cut the idli into squares Remove on plate and cook just the middle part for another 1 minute.

    Serve with coconut and tomato chutney
  • To make coconut chutney, grind everything in a blender.

    Adjust the consistency by adding a tsp of water.You can also reduce cilantro if you want it less green.

I made it today, they were a bit dry but excellent for quick snack or breakfast. I will make it again as this does not need an idli mould.
