Cracked Wheat Mini Idly - Kid Friendly Recipe

This was a trial experiment and I should say I was very much satisfied with the result. I've already blogged about the same batter for dosa here in the past. I wanted to try out idly today only because my kid wouldn't eat dosa with it! 

I tried the mini version since it was only for him and surprisingly the idly was very fluffy and soft :)

Cracked wheat - 2 cups
Urad dal - 1/2 cup

1. Soak the urad dal and cracked wheat separately and let it sit for a couple of hours
2. Make a paste of the urad dal in the blender adding little water as required
3. Make a paste of the cracked wheat adding little water (this will be in the batter consistency, while the urad dal is a little fluffy)
4. Mix the wheat and urad dal, salt and let it ferment over night
5. Make mini idlies with the batter. 

I mixed the mini idlies in podi and gingely oil for my kid.
