Green Moong Dal Idli withDaliya ( Cracked wheat) /Brown Basmati rice( Less Grains )and Instant Vegetable Sambar . One go for Breakfast and Dinner . Shared 3 combination of Lentils with Grains to prepare Green Moong Dal Idli with well fermented batter .

 I tried Green Moong Dal idli with both Daliya( Cracked wheat) and Brown Basmati rice and with Less Grains. When we prepare Idli the ratio of Lentils to Grains will be 1 :2 or 3 I tried with equal parts of Lentils and Grains. They turned out Soft and fluffy.Recipe is for 24 Idli’s . When ever I prepare Idli we eat for Breakfast and for Dinner .  Breakfast with Curry Leaf powder and Ghee. The rest for Dinner with Instant Vegetable  Sambar. That is the reson why I like Steamed Idli’s. Less work and we can eat for any meal .  Waiting for Summer to try Steamed Idli’s with Different lentils and Grains. Why to wait for Summer . Idli need well fermented Batter. So we can enjoy Soft and Fluffy Idli’s  . You can enjoy soft and fluffy Idli’s if the batter is fermented properly . My batter is fermenting because of Summer and I leave overnight in the Oven and it will be ready for Breakfast. I like Idli for Breakfast because no need to stay in Kitchen to prepare Breakfast. Just pour batter in Idli moulds and Steam . Grease the plates with Oil before pouring the batter. So they come out Clean and you can wash in Dish washer. Recipe is for 24 Idli’s and I refrigerate the rest  for Dinner. Here is the Simple recipe with 3 Ingredients .
