This recipe is from my friend Poornima. I have posted many of her recipes here so far. She is one of the most important source of Kannada recipes for me. Few days back I called her and she gave me many recipes and this is one of them.
Pumpkin is called Kumbalkayi in Kannada. This is a spicy idli. I prepared this few days back and absolutely loved it.
The Konkani version of pumpkin idli(dudde kadamb) is sweet in taste.
1 cup idli rava (rice sooji)
1 tbl spn chana daal
1 tbl spn moong daal
3/4 cup grated pumpkin
1/2 cup chopped onion
4-5 green chilies
2-3 strands coriander leaves
1/4 cup coconut
Increase or decrease the amount of daal according to taste.
Soak idli rava in water. Soak daals seperately for around 4 hrs(I soaked them overnight).
Mix rava, daals, onions, pumpkin, green chilies, coriander leaves, coconut and salt.
Keep the mixture in idli stand and steam for around 12-15mins (According to original method given by my friend, make small balls of the mixture and steam them).
Serves : 2-3
Preparation time : 20mins
