Talicha Idli / Seasoned Idli - Quck & Easy Breakfast Ideas

Are you tired of having the same boring idli's again and again..Then why not spice things up..Add some spices into your normal idli batter and create this unique idli. I found this recipe in a cookbook and found it very interesting, so immediately tried it and it came out super good.

The cool thing is you dont need any sidedish for this idli. But if you want any sidedish, you can try any of my chutney recipes. So hope you like it and let me know what you think.

Preparation Time : 5 mins
Cooking Time : 8 to 10 mins
Serves : 2 to 3


Idli Batter - 3 cups (Click here for recipe)
Salt to taste

For Seasoning:
Oil - 1 tblspn
Mustard Seeds / Kaduku - 1 tsp

Cumin Seeds / Jeerakam - 1 tsp
Channa Dal / Kadala Paruppu - 1 tsp
Urad dal / Ulundu Paruppu - 1 tsp

Heat oil in a kadai. Add in all the seasoning ingredients, except coconut and saute for a min.

Add in coconut and toss well in the oil. Fry it for a min, so it turns light golden.
