aalu ki idli

aloo idli recipe | aalu ki idli | aloo suji ki idli | aloo rava idli with step by step photo and video recipe. dosa and idli recipes are a common breakfast meal for many south indians. but the same rice and urad or even rava based idli or dosa and can be monotonous and you may crave for some unique and different flavoured idli recipe. to solve this problem, i am offering this unique and tasty idli recipe made with rava and an additional ingredient of mashed aloo added to the batter.

i get so many emails from my readers and most of the requests fall under the same category with some changes or fusion to the traditional recipes. the explanation i get is that they are bored with same monotonous traditional recipes and any simple and minor twist would make it more attractive. keeping those in mind, i am presenting this simple and easy alternative to the traditional rava idli. last i has shown you the stuffed idli with potato masala stuffed inside the idli batter. but in this recipe, i have added and mixed the potato puree directly to the rava idli batter. thus adding all the goodness of potato flavour directly to the idli recipe. well if are wondering that potato may not get cooked by adding directly to the batter, then you are wrong with it. it easily gets cooked with steam and you do not have to take any additional steps to cook it.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variations to the aloo idli recipe. firstly, i have used just potatoes or aloo puree for this recipe, but you can use any other vegetables with it. the ideal alternative would be green peas, beans, carrots, broccoli and even cauliflower would be an ideal choice. secondly, you really do not need any additional side dish or chutney to be served with this idli. having said that any spicy chutney like coriander chutney makes it a perfect combo meal. lastly, you may also prepare the same idli with other ingredients like oats, rice rava and ragi millet too. i personally i have not tried this combination with rice and urad combo, but i am confident it should work with that too.
