For making the idlis take out the idli batter(here I have used a readymade batter of Fresho) in a vessel. Add the above-made vermicelli mix in it. Mix well and taste it to adjust the salt content.

Step 3

Now put the idli batter in the steamer molds with a ladle and steam it for fifteen minutes. You may check the idlis in between the steaming process and see whether they are done or not.

Add the chopped onions and green chilies and saute for a minute. Now add the roasted peanuts, the spice mix, salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, coriander powder,garam masala, dry mango powder, tomato puree and fry for a minute. Now add the tamarind paste and the ground potato paste and fry for half a minute before adding the water to make the gravy. Let it simmer on a medium flame for five minutes before switching the gas off.


Our Potato Rasa is done.


Now coming to last but not the least dish, that of peanut and sesame chutney, take the ingredients of the chutney, peanuts, sesame, onion, garlic pod, dry red chilies in a pan and dry roast them till lightly browned.

Step 6


Put this in a chutney jar and add some water. Now grind it into a thick paste and add some salt and lemon juice to it. Add the tempering ingredients and mix well.
