Idli Tikka Recipe With Sambar

Idli Tikka Recipe was innovated when I wanted to serve idli in a different style to my kids. To the kids who love eye-appetizing recipes and a bit skeptic towards the traditional recipes, it is actually a lot easier to stuff all the good stuff, by a recipe like this one. This extraordinary and eye-catching recipe of Idli Tikka is arranged on the dessert bowls and poured with sambar on top. I have given you the recipe of tomato & vegetable sambar as well.

Serve Idli Tikka Recipe alongside a bowl of runny South Indian Coconut Chutney and Peanut Chutney Powder Recipe for dinner or for a Sunday brunch to spice up your weekend with family.

Directions for Idli Tikka Recipe With Sambar

  1. To begin making Idli Tikka Recipe, take the idli dosa batter, and keep ready. Keep the idli steamer to preheat, with water inside. Make sure that the water level does not touch or cross the idli plates when arranges inside.

  2. Grease all the cavities of idli steaming pan and pour in the batter into each cavity.

  3. Once done, steam the idlis for 10-15 minutes of full heat or till done. Here I have used mini idli pan too do these idlis.

  4. In a shallow frying pan, heat a teaspoon of oil. Once hot, add mustard seeds to temper the idlis and wait until they splutter well and switch off heat. Add idlis in the pan and toss to coat. Add salt only if needed. Take care that the idlis won't break while tossing. Saute lightly and switch off heat.

To make Sambar:
  1. To prepare sambar, in a pressure cooker, cook arhar dal with halved tomato, with enough water, to about 3 whistles or till mushy. Allow the pressure to release by itself. Once done, take out all the contents in a mixer grinder, grind coarsely. You can even mash it well with a wooden masher instead.

  2. Transfer it back into the pressure cooker, add turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder, sambar powder and required salt and mix it well with a ladle.

  3. Add the cooked and chopped bottle gourd and drumsticks and cook for 10- 15 minutes on medium heat or till it is combined well in the sambar.

  4. In a tadka pan, heat a teaspoon of oil. Once hot, add the ingredients to temper the sambar and wait until they splutter well and switch off heat. Pour this on the sambar.

To Saute Veggies:
  1. In a shallow frying pan, heat a bit of oil and add all the vegetables and saute for 4-5 minutes on low-medium heat or till slightly tender but cooked al dente. Keep aside.

  2. On a wooden skewer, thread a piece of red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper then a green bell pepper, then one mini idli, and again do same ordering for second idli, and arrange them on a serving bowl.

  3. Pour sambar to the bowl and enjoy the idlis and bell peppers after dunking them in! Serve Idli Tikka Recipe alongside a bowl of runny South Indian Coconut Chutney and Peanut Chutney Powder Recipe for dinner or for a Sunday brunch to spice up your weekend.
