A Konkani vegetable Idli recipe which is a good change from the regular rice idli. My Mother-in-law's recipe again.
I make it mildly sweet. For Cucumber Idli I used sugar, but for this I tried jaggery and it tasted better. Whenever pumpkin is not available, I use Butternut Squash and squash idlis taste great too.
Grated Pumpkin/Kadoo - 4 cups
Grated Coconut - 3/4 cup
Idli Rava (Cream of Raw Rice) - 1 cup
Jaggery or Brown sugar - about 3/4 cup
Salt - 1/2 tspCoconut Oil or Ghee/Clarified Butter
How to cook Konkani Dudde Idli:
- Peel the pumpkin skin and grate it.
- In a mixing bowl, add grated pumpkin, grated coconut (fresh or frozen), idli rava, jaggery, salt. Mix all the ingredients well. Add more or less sugar to suit your taste.
- Grease the idli plates with little coconut oil or clarified butter or any other oil.
- Add the above mixture in the idli mold/mould and steam it for about 12 - 15 minutes.
- Remove the cooker lid and let it cool for 5 -7 minutes. If the lid is not removed after cooking, the idlis will turn too moist. Cooling will help the idlis come off easily without breaking.
