Ingredients to make Taushe Idli

  • Grated cucumber - 2 cups
  • rice rava - 1 cup
  • 1 cup dosa rice
  • Grated fresh coconut 1/2 cup
  • Green chilli - 2-3
  • oil for greasing idli moulds
  • salt to taste

How to make Taushe Idli

  1. Wash, peel and grate cucumber. Wash the rice rawa and keep aside.
  2. Grind green chillies and coconut into a fine paste adding little water. Add the grated cucumbers,coconut green chilly paste and salt to the rice rawa.
  3. Set aside for an hour. No need to add water at this time as the cucumbers will leave its water. After one hour check if the mixture requires water and make it to idli batter consistency.
  4. Grease the idli moulds with oil. Pour the rice-cucumber mixture half way through in each mould. Steam it for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Taushe idlis are ready!! These idlis are generally eaten with butter or coconut oil and no chutney if you can serve it with chutney if you wish to.

My Tip:

Note: Whenever I am going to make this during weekdays I use dosa rice which I soak overnight and grind with very little water and add to the cucumber and coconut mixture. In this way you don't need to wait for one hour after mixing the coconut and cucumbers and make idlis immediately. Adding green chillies is totally optional, it is generally made without green chillies but I find the idli too bland so I always add green chillies.
