Mixed Beans Idli
Ingredients
Idli rice - 1 cup
Mixed beans - 1 cup
(I used Black eye bean - 1/4 cup,White Channa/Chickpea - 1/4 cup,Horse gram - 1/4 cup,Rajma - 1/4 cup)
Whole urad dal with skin - 1/2 cup
( You can also use urad dal without skin)
Salt to taste
Method
Wash & soak rice and all the beans together in enough water for at least 6 hrs or overnight.
Wash & soak urad dal separately in another bowl for at least 6 hrs or overnight.
Drain out excess water from the urad dal,add it to the grinder & grind for at least 40 minutes.
Sprinkle water in intervals till you get a light & nice fluffy batter.Transfer to a wide bowl.
Same way grind the rice and beans for at least 30 minutes to a smooth  batter.The batter should be little thicker than urad dal batter.
Transfer to the urad dal batter add salt mix both the batters well.Cover & leave it to ferment to 6 to 8 hrs.Before using mix the batter well grease the idli plates pour a ladle of batter and steam till cooked.
Serve these healthy Idli with any chutney.
Kara Chutney / Milagai Chutney will go well give a try.

Note:
a) This batter will ferment fast so do not grind in huge quantity and store it in fridge as we do for regular Idli/Dosa batter.
b) As there beans are hard to grind in my table top wet grinder,i I pulse the beans and rice in a blender and then add it to my wet grinder.
