Pepper Cumin Idli is easy to make if you have idli batter at home for a change. You can either serve it along with sambhar and chutney or rasam. I preferred to have it with rasam of course, it is the choice of individuals.
It is not similar to kanjeevaram idli since more ingredients are added in kanjeevaram idli than the pepper cumin idli.
Preparation for the same is like the normal idli batter. Just before preparing the idli, add the crushed cumin, pepper, hing powder,ginger powder and curry leaves and then make the idlis.
Now let us look at the recipe:
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 10-15 minutes
Ingredients1 cup idli batter
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp black pepper corns
1/4 tsp ginger powder (sunth)
1 to 2 sprigs of curry leaves dried
1 tbsp ghee
generous pinch of asafoetida
Step 1Put the black pepper corns, cumin seeds and curry leaves in mixer and crush them.
Step 2Heat ghee, put the above mixture in ghee. When it sizzles, add this to the idli batter. Add the ginger (sunth) powder and asafoetida. Mix well.
Step 3Grease the idli mould, pour the batter in the idli plate and steam cook for 10-15 minutes.
Your pepper cumin idli is ready.
How to serve:Serve hot with sambhar, rasam or chutney.
- Pepper corns if you want can add little more according to your requirement.
- Preferably serve hot
- I prefer to have the kozhukkattai, idli, dosa with rasam too.
