Ingredients to make 10-12 Idlis:

  4. Meanwhile chop the Ladies finger into small pieces. 
  5. Grind Ladies finger using the mixer grinder jar without adding water.

  8. Use a dry mixie jar and make Sorghum rice to a coarse powder.
  9. Add Sorghum rice powder with batter and mix it well. Keep it aside.

  11. Now the batter is ready. Use the Idli pot to steam Idlis.


  • I learnt this recipe in Nature Cure camp and customized it.
  • Sorghum rice is generally available in all organic stores. If it is not available in your area, you may use hand pounded rice.
  • Instead of Cabbage and Carrot, use Chayote (Chow Chow) or Indian beans (Broad beans) or any two types of vegetables of your choice.
  • You can also find Satvik Idli made with Ash gourd and rice here.
  • Similarly you can make Idli with Ragi and you can find its recipe here.
