Kanchipuram Idly

     Its my long time wish to taste this idly and that too need to give a try atleast once. Even went to "Murugan Idly" shop in chennai to taste but i got an unlucky response as they dont have it in menu on that day :( So, finally decided, Why need to depend on Hotels, why shouldnt i give a try. After my long time surfing on net, finally got the recipe and was sceptical to take up because, addition of Ginger and Pepper which always gives bitter taste when the ratio gets mismatched. Somehow roughly calculated the ratio and finally tried the basic version !!! Even am happy with the outcome but thought my hubby will not like this for sure. But it was vice-versa, OMG ! He enjoyed thoroughly... That was a real surprise to me :)


ALL YOU NEED:
Idly Batter 3 cups
Mustard 2 spoons
Pepper Corns 1 spoon
Cumin Seeds 1 spoons
Chopped Ginger 1 inch


METHOD:
     Coarsely grind pepper corns and keep it aside. Heat a spoon of oil in a pan. Add mustard, once it splutters, add coarsely powdered pepper corns, chopped ginger and cumin seeds. Saute it for 5 minutes. Put off the flame. Allow it to cool down. Once done, add the sauted ingredients to the idly batter, give a hard stir. Now pour it in a wide bowl and pressure cook it or Take a mini paper cups, grease with oil, pour the batter into it and place it in idly pan and pressure cook it as you do cook normal idlies.
