Summer vacations are about to begin here and this is the last week of online classes for my daughter. Many people we know are travelling to India and even though I am happy for them, it is making me homesick. Sometimes no matter how much you explain to your mind and heart, it fails to listen. Missing people you love is the worst kind of heartache which does not go away until you meet them.

My Amma has been telling me how safe I am here and I truly accept that. But on days when I am down, all I want is to go to Amma, sleep on her lap and just listen to her talk. That’s the most comfortable place on Earth and I really miss it. ❤️

With all this going on, blogging was the last thing on my mind, but today morning I had a heart to heart talk with my best friend, Sunanda who suggested me to focus on the blog for some relief. Talking to her really brought peace in me and I decided to think only about positives as much as possible. Really blessed to have her in my life, who is with me in all my ups and downs in life since many years. As is said, you don’t need the whole world, just handful of friends who support and love you is more than enough. ❤️

After this emotional talk, here’s sharing my kids’ “green idlis”. 😀 For them, Mallige Idli is “white idli” , Ragi Idli is “chocolate idli”, Pumpkin idli is “yellow idli” and so on.. so these are their green idlis as it’s made of green moong even though it’s a mix of green and brown in colour. The idlis come out soft and delicious with the flavour of moong in it. Do try for a change and I am sure you will like it. Happy and healthy cooking! ❤️

RECIPE:

Ingredients: { 13 idlis and about 6 dosas }

1 Cup Split green gram / green moong dal with skin

1/2 Cup Split Urad dal

Salt to taste

Step by step recipe:

1. Take Urad dal and Moong dal separately in two vessels.

2. Wash atleast couple of times till water turns clear. Now soak in enough water for atleast 2 to 4 hours. Look at how much moong gets increased in size on soaking.

3. Now, first grind Urad dal with little water to a smooth paste. Pour in a vessel.

4. Now grind moong dal with little water to a smooth paste. Pour into the same bowl as Urad dal paste. Mix well adding salt.

5. Ferment overnight or for atleast 6 hours. Look at how well the batter ferments.

6. Mix well and add into greased idli moulds.

7. Steam in idli steamer for about 20 mins till a knife inserted in the center of the idli comes out clear.

8. Allow it to cool slightly. Remove and serve with a chutney of your choice.

Notes:

* I have served them with my Amma’s style Tomato chutney and it makes a great combination.

* Dosas from this batter comes out very crispy. Here is the picture.

* You can also make these idlis with regular yellow moong dal like I make these Urad Moong dal idlis.

* I also make whole moong idlis. You can check the recipe here – Whole moong idlis.
