Grits Idly

February 11, 2008 at 2:47 am 6 comments

Grits is made by finely grinding corn kernels that are dried and hulled.More information about grits can be found here.I have been using this grits to make idlies like rav idly.It has now become a part of my common breakfast menu these days.

To make these idlies,

  • Dry roast grits till nice aroma comes and grits turn to very light golden colour.
  • Remove from heat and add desired amount of grated carrot and finely chopped beans.Few sprigs of cilantro finely chopped can also be stirred in.
  • Add and stir yogurt to this mixture just enough to make the batter thin like a cake batter.
  • In a pan,heat a tsp of ghee,add a tsp of cashewnuts and/or peanuts and fry them till golden.Then,add half tsp each of mustard and cumin and let mustard seeds pop.
  • Add this to the mixture.Add salt to taste,stir and leave it overnight so that the mixture is ready to make idlies the next day morning.
  • Make idlies as usual and serve with any chutney.

    Hey, so I tried these last night – they were good!

    I didn’t end up soaking the batter for long enough, so they got hard quickly, but the ones that I ate initially were awesome. Great idea!

    thanks fro giving a try and letting me know your experience Kaykat.that was actually good info cos in my house,I made this for 3 times now. And all the 3 times we had them just when done.So,din’t know about this hardness.But,may be you can try microwaving for 30 secs just before eating.
    thanks a lot for your feedback dear.
    Easycrafts,I don’t know whether this is available in India or not.I’ll be glad if it is available as even I will be moving to India soon.

    Being from down south, I never thought about doing grits like this, but sounds great.

    I’ll give it a try!
