Vegetable Stuffed Idli


Idli.
My favourite.
Today the lunch-box had to be something easy and simple. So, I made a masala filling with corn and capsicum; and, stuffed it inside the idli.

Ingredients:
For the stuffing
Corn - 1/2 cup, steamed or microwaved for 2 minutes
Capsicum - 1/4 cup, chopped
Onion - 1/4 cup, chopped
Tomato - 1 small, chopped
Oil - 1 Tbsp
Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp
Dhaniya Powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Corriander Leaves

Instructions:
Heat oil and add onions and saute until pink. Then add the capsicum and corn.
Stir fry on a high flame for 1 minute.
Next add the tomatoes, masala powders and salt to taste. Simmer covered for 3 minutes.
Add chopped corriander leaves and take off heat.

Get an Idli steamer ready.
Spoon in a Tablespoonful of batter into each cavity.
Spread it with about a tablespoon full of masala over it gently.
Top the masala (to cover thoroughly) with some more batter.
Steam for 5 to 7 minutes until well cooked.

Turn out and serve hot with Coconut Chutney.

Note:

While packing it for lunch, smear some ghee or gingelly oil on the top. Cool and then pack into the lunch box.

Variations:

Add some mashed potatoes into the masala for a lovely Sandwich.
This also makes a wonderful stuffing for Chapathi.
