This is a traditional Konkani preparation which goes well with Dal and Rice. Also served as Masala Idli in some of the restaurants, the Sannakhotto can be made with a variety of vegetables or garden fresh greens. Today I have selected Cabbage and onion to make it. It is best eaten with a tsp of coconut oil drizzled on it.
- 125 gms toor dal/Pigeon peas
- 125 gms rice
- 3 onions chopped fine
- Cabbage chopped the same amount as the onions
- 1/2 of a small coconut
- 9 guntur chillies roasted
- 9 bedgi chillies roasted
- 1 tbsp tamarind
Wash and soak the rice and toor dal together for 3 hours. First grind the coconut, roasted chillies and tamarind to a smooth paste. Add the rice and toor dal and grind to a Semolina like consistency. Remove and add the chopped onion, cabbage and salt and mix well. Grease the Idli mould with coconut oil. Pour the batter into the mould and place it in a steamer which has been kept boiling. Steam till done. It takes around 20 minutes. A knife inserted in the sanna khotto should come out clean. Allow to cool. Remove from the mould. Serve drizzled with coconut oil.
