cabbage idli

Cabbage idly is my hubby's favourite side dish.  He like to eat it for breakfast and with lunch.  Actually this cabbage idli is eaten as a side dish for lunch. 


1 1/2 cup of grated coconut
1 cup of white rice
1 cup of chopped cabbage
1 big onion
10-15 red chillies depending upon requirement
salt to taste

Soak white rice for 2 hours and wash the rice and keep aside.  Grind grated coconut and red chillies roughly then add rice and grind with little water (like uppma rava) to thick paste.  Then add chopped cabbage, chopped onion and salt.  

Grease the Idli mould with oil  and put the mixture into it and steam for 30 minutes.  Cabbage idli is ready to eat.  This can be served with little coconut oil on top of it or with Piyava Ghashi.
