Ingredients to make Healthy Spinach Idli

  • Idli batter - 1 cup
  • Roughly chopped spinach - 2 to 3 bunches
  • cashew nuts(slit into 2 parts) - 5 to 6 pieces (optional)
  • salt to taste

  • Pinch of garam masala

How to make Healthy Spinach Idli

  1. Cut and Wash the spinach leaves properly and keep it aside.
  2. Blanch them in hot water for 3 minutes. When cool, puree them into a grinder.
  3. Transfer the spinach puree into a idli batter bowl, add the salt, red chilli powder, pinch of garam masala and mix well.
  4. Grease the idli moulds using oil, put spoonfuls of the batter into idli moulds, add a piece of cashew nut on top of batter and
  5. steam in a cooker or steamer for 10 to 12 minutes or till the idli's are cooked. I have used my prestige pressure cooker for steaming the idli.
  6. Cool slightly, de-mould the idli's with the help of spoon and soft side of knife.
  7. Serve immediately with healthy roasted chana dal & coconut chutney or with juice or enjoy with tea or coffee !!

My Tip:

Wash the spinach leaves and Blanch them in hot water for 3 minutes and transfer into cool water (it helps to not to change the color of the palak puree)
