Masala Idli with Chutney

Sunday often calls for lazy brunches and easy dinners… Isn’t it? I can prepare all the heavy stuff on Saturdays but on Sunday – Nahhhhh! Infact season is also one of the reason – These days I don’t even feel like stepping into kitchen for elaborate cooking sessions… It’s like pick the fruits or blend in some smoothies or juices or prepare some light , not-so-oily dishes and come out.. It’s so hot in Delhi and Kitchens are becoming a furnace day by day… But again, till when one can avoid it? Ultimately you have to… πŸ™‚

Keeping the same thing in mind, these days I am preparing some easy-peezy recipes which do not require long hours of planning or standing in the kitchen… One of my family favorites are Suji Idli prepared in 15 mins with loads of fresh vegetables, spices and served with delicious spicy hare dhaniye – pudine ki chutney!

These Suji Idlis are not like traditional idli which takes almost 15-20 hours for the batter to ferment.. these are the quick ones… Mix everything well, let it rest and prepare it. Let’s have a look on the recipe!
