Serving these curd idlis is a very healthy option, and for those who want to avoid fried stuff like Curd vadas, this recipe will be a blessing.
Thanks to my niece, who told to make like this, since she had recently tasted in a relatives home.


Ingredients
Enough Idli batter to make 14 Idlis
Curds/yogurt - 1 1/2 cups
Hing powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste

To grind
Grated coconut - 3 tsps
Green chillies - 2
A small piece ginger

For topping
Grated carrots - 1/4 cup
Pomegranate arils - 1/4 cup
Chopped coriander leaves - 1/8 cup
Chilli powder - a pinch
Cornflakes mixture, boondi or sev, as needed to sprinkle on top

Recipe cuisine: South Indian; Category: Starters/ snacks/lunch/dinner
Prep time: 10 mts; Cooking time: 15 mts

Yields 14 Idlis

Idli batter poured into the greased plate


After cooking, let them cool down


Add hing powder and salt to the curds


Ingredients for grinding loaded into the blender jar


Ground, then added to the curds


and whisked well



Arrange the idlis in a shallow plate, and cover the idlis liberally with the prepared curds


Sprinkle the grated carrot


Also, the pomegranate arils and chopped coriander/cilantro leaves


You can sprinkle some chilli powder on top of each idli, just before serving


I decorated each idli with a piece of Cornflakes mixture, to provide little bit  crunch. You can sprinkle some sev or boondi too.

Notes
* You can season some mustard seeds in a teaspoon of oil or ghee and pour on top. I did not have the heart to add any oil or ghee to these very healthy Idlis
