Sago Idly

Photobucket

Those cute little tiny white balls have been enjoyed by me since my childhood days. Yes!! I'm speaking about the humble sago (Javvarisi / Sabbubiyam). Upma or payasam, be it in whatever form I would simple enjoy it :)

Sago idly!!!! I exclaimed when my mother in law made this last week. I got lost in the taste that I forgot to take pics of it for a post. I requested her to teach me and make it again this week and she did it completely for me and for my readers :) Isn't that sweet of her!! :)

I'm sure you and your kids would love this idly :)

Ingredients:

Sago - 1 cup
Par boiled rice rava - 3 cups
Curd - 1 1/2 cups
Oil - 5 tsp

Method:

Take the sago and rice rava in a bowl and wash with water. Now drain the water completely and add the beaten curd and mix well. Let it get soaked over night.

Now add oil to a pan and crackle mustard seeds, urad dhall and channa dhall. Fry for a min and add chopped curry leaves and chopped green chillies and fry for one more minute. Add it to the batter along with salt and cooking soda and mix well. Just in case the batter is too thick and dry add a little more curd and mix. The batter should be of idly batter consistency.

Now grease the idly plates with oil and fill it 3/4th with batter and steam cook for 15 mins in medium flame.

Delicious sago idlies are ready to eat :)
Serve hot with chutney.

Tips:
Do not use sour curd for this idly. Use fresh curds.
This idly goes well with tomato, onion or garlic chutney.

Smultron Soul said...

Hi! I would love to know what sago is, and what rava is? I have "parboiled rice" in my pantry, if I just grind that up, does it become 'rava'? Thanks!

susha said...

your blog is awesome.. i am regular reader. great work.!!!!


And what does "par boiled rava" mean..? is it a normal rava? if it is a normal rava how could we wash it with water.

Umamaheswari said...

Is 1 cup curd enough to soak 3 cup rava and 1 cup sago..you have mentioned about adding bit more of curd if needed. Don't we need to add more water/curd to make it as idli batter..pls clarify the curd / water proportion..want to try this one!

Nithya said...

Thanks all.

Umamaheshwari - Since you are washing the sago and rice rawa once with water the wetness would be there. So one cup of curd would do for soaking it. Later you might have to use just 1/2 cup of buttermilk or curd to liquidate it.
