How to make Keema Stuffed Idli

  1. I used store-bought idli batter. Just added some salt and have a mix. Then kept aside.
  2. Heat a wok. Add the oil. Add the cumin seeds.
  3. Fry until splutters. Now add in the onion. Add the ginger garlic paste and fry for 2 minutes.
  4. Add all the spices, salt, and 2 tablespoons of water.
  5. Cool until the oil separates. Add the tomatoes and cover with the lid.
  6. Cool till the tomatoes smashes and mix with the spices very well.
  7. Add the chicken keema and shredded carrot. Adjust salt. Add the chopped coriander and green chillies. Cover and cook well.
  8. Put off the flame and keep aside.
  9. Grease the idli moulds. Take some water in a microwavable bowl; which has a lid .
  10. Pour 1 tablespoon of the batter into each idly mould. Then add 1 teaspoon full Keema mix onto it. Now cover the keema with another 1 tablespoon or more batter on top of it.
  11. Keep the moulds in the bowl. Cover with the lid.
  12. Microwave for 4 -7 minutes. Allow the standing time for 2 minutes more.
  13. Serve with any Chutney and sambar. My daughter loves to have it with Dahi only.

My Tip:

Second batch takes less time than the first batch; as the microwave is already hot. You can use any cooked or left over vegetables or chicken or egg as stuffing.
