02acd95bd1464ac16dad 550

Sooji idli, a quick and simple tea-time snack that is low in fat, this is a perfect option for health conscious people. I’ve used low-fat curds to impart a nice taste and to make the idlis soft. For a wholesome evening snack of just 150 calories, serve three idlis with green chutney, page. . . . Make sure that you make the idlis as soon as you have added the fruit salt to the batter to ensure a fluffy product.















1 cup durum semolina flour
¼ cup curd cheese
1 tablespoons coriander
(dhania), fresh cilantro, chopped
1 x salt
to taste
1 ¼ teaspoon vegetable oil
for tempering and greasing
1 each green chili peppers
finely chopped
¾ teaspoon salt
fruit salt


Combine the semolina, curds, coriander, salt, green chili and 1 cup of water in a bowl, mix well and keep aside for 10 minutes.

Add fruit salt to the batter and mix well.

Grease the idli moulds with the remaining ¼ teaspoon of oil and pour 2 tbsp of the batter into each idli mould.

Steam in a steamer for 8 to 10 minutes. Serve hot.

Handy tips :

Fruit salt contains sodium so the salt has to added accordingly.

Boil the water in the steamer before putting the idlis to steam.
