Kuthiraivali thatte idliIf you have travelled on the Bengaluru-Mysore highway then you would have seen many thatte idli shops. Most of the travellers stop here to have a quick piping hot thatte idli. It is so soft and delicious that you will not stop with one. Thatte in Kannada means a plate. This idli is not in the form of regular idlis but is in a plate form hence the name. Usually, we use idli rice to make this idli. But since I am off white rice, I have used barnyard millet or kuthiraivali to make this Kuthiraivali thatte idli.

Kuthiraivali Thatte Idli

This kuthiraivali thatte idli, unlike other idlis, uses more than just 2 ingredients. Here we use the millet, urad dal, rice flakes and sago to give the necessary softness to the idli. It is soaked for few hours and ground into a smooth batter. Then the batter is poured in the plate idli moulds and steamed. This is best served hot with hotel tiffin sambar and coconut chutney.

This week the theme for Foodie Monday blog hop was idli medley and the theme was chosen by Mayuri who blogs at  Mayuri’s Jikoni. The clause that she had put forward was that we do not use rice in the recipe. So here is millet-based idli to tantalise your tastebuds.

Here is the quick video to show the preparation of this soft idli

Lovely recipe Veena, using barnyard millet and sago too. I’ve learnt soothing new today, didn’t know that idlis were steamed in a plate or thatte. Will have to take a trip to Mysore so we can sample these unusual idlis.

I think I have eaten this on the highway. We we’re on the way to Mysore I think, and this piping hot in the morning and you are right we could not stop at one. Yummy share.

Pa you are too much! I always have wanted to try making these thatte idlis. I watched a lot of videos for making them but since you have used barnyard millets I am more interested in making these.

Loved the look of the idli. Its completely new for me. Never heard of thatte idli. I have to go to Mysore to taste it. Adding of barnyard millet and sago made it super healthy and interesting. Awesome share.
