Mupparuppu Idly For Varamahaalakshmi Vratham / Trilentil Idlies

MUPPARUPPU IDLY FOR VARAMAHAALAKSHMI VRATHAM

Mupparuppu Idly/ trilentil idly is an interesting variation of the customary rice Idlies prepared as neivedhyam for  Sri Varamahaalakshmi. They are nutritious and tasty, besides having a lower glycemic index.



 INGREDIENTS 
Bengal gram dal ( Split )- 1/2 cup 
Black gram dal ( Split ) -1/2 cup 
Green gram dal ( Split ) - 1/2 cup 
Beaten rice - 1 tsp 
Fenugreek seeds - 1/2 tsp 

TO MAKE THE BATTER 
1. Wash and soak all the above ingredients for an hour till the lentils become soft. 
2. Grind them together into a slightly coarse and thick batter adding the required amount of water. 3. Blend 1 1/2 tsp of salt , 1 pinch of sugar and 1 tsp of curd into the batter. 
4. Allow to ferment overnight. 

INGREDIENTS FOR THE GARNISH 
Green chillies ( Chopped ) - 1 tsp 
Fresh ginger ( Chopped ) - 1 tsp 
Fresh coconut ( Chopped ) - 1 tsp 
Fresh coriander leaves ( Chopped ) - 1tsp 

Curry leaves ( Chopped ) - 1 tsp 

Ghee roasted cashew nuts - a few 



TO MAKE THE IDLIES 
5. Mix all the chopped ingredients into the batter. 
6. Pour ladleful of batter  into the greased  idly moulds and steam them in the pressure cooker for 15 minutes without using the weight. 
7. Allow the steam to subside and ease out the idlies using a knife or a teaspoon. The idlies will puff up resembling tennis balls. A few of my idlies even developed cracks in the process of puffing up! 


Offer the nutritious and flavoursome Mupparuppu Idlies to Sri Varamahaalakshmi and relish the prasaadam with your near and dear ones.
