Instant Oats and Ragi Idli

Tried and Tasted from Veg Inspirations:
When i first saw this recipe at Usha's Veg Inspirations i knew i definitely have to make this. This is something very easy to make packed with nutrients. It will definitely be a great hit with both grown ups and kids. This nutritious packed idli can be made more healthy by adding some grated carrot, beetroot or even spinach, but i just followed Usha's recipe without any change.

Recipe adapted from Usha's Veg Inspiration
Ingredients:
Semolina( preferrably course)- 3/4 cup
Rolled oats- 3/4 cup
Ragi flour- 1/4 cup
Yogurt- 1 cup
Buttermilk-11/4 cup
Coriander leaves- 2 stalk
Bicarbonate of soda- 1 tsp
Salt as required
For the seasoning:
Channa dhal- 1 tsp
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Urad dhal- 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves- 1 stalk
Green chilli- 2 finely chopped
Cashewnut- 4 to 5 broken into pieces
Oil-2 tsp
Method:
Powder the rolled oats coarsely in a blender. Mix together the oats, ragi flour, semolina, salt and bicarbonate of soda in a large bowl.
To prepare the seasoning heat the oil in a pan, add mustard, urad dhal, channa dhal , curry leaves, green chilli and cashew nuts. When the dhal and nuts are light brown in colour, add the seasoning to the flour mixture and mix well.
Now add the yogurt, buttermilk and finely chopped coriander leaves and mix well to make a batter. Immediately pour the idli batter in the greased idli moulds and steam it. This would be a perfect breakfast or dinner with chutney and sambhar.
