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.

Rava Idli / Rawa Idli Recipe / Semolina Idly /Sooji Idli Recipe With ENO

Step by step method/picture to make Rava Idli /Rawa Idli /Sooji / Semolina Idly with ENO
photo of Rava Idly / Rava Idli / Semolina Idly /Sooji Idli Recipe With ENO
Rava Idli
Ingredients
White rava/sooji/semolina-1 cup
Salt-1/2tsp or to your taste
Turmeric powder- a generous pinch
Curd-1 cup
Water-1/4 cup
Lime juice-3/4 tsp
ENO fruit salt-1/2tsp
Tempering
Oil-1 tsp
Mustard-1/2tsp
Urad & Channa dal-each 1/4tsp
Chopped green chillies-1
Chopped ginger-1/8tsp
Chopped curry & coriander leaves-1tsp
Garnish
Grated carrot & fried cashew nuts

Method
Heat oil in a pan & temper it with above ingredients.
Add the rava & turmeric powder, in very low flame fry for few minutes,do not burn or over fry them.I usually switch off the stove & fry it in the heat of the pan.
Cool this mixture,now mix the water,lime juice,salt & curd.The mixture will look like a idly batter,light & semi thick ( your batter should not be too thick or too thin).
Grease your idly plates with oil,place a fried cashew nut & some grated carrot.
Heat water in your idly cooker,once your ready to steam the idly, mix in the ENO to your batter & gently mix till it forms froth & bubbles starts to appear.
Immediately pour a ladle of batter on top of the carrot/cashew nut & steam them for 8 minutes or till done.
Serve it hot with any chutney you wish.


Note:
ENO is very important ingredient in this recipe,make sure its active,otherwise your idlys will not turn out good.Some people use cooking soda instead of ENO fruit salt.
You can also mix in grated carrots & peas into the batter.
Instead of chopped green chillies & ginger ,you can grind & add it to the batter.
