Spice Rack’s all-in-one Makhani Spice Mix is the star of the show, bringing a medley of rich flavours with every spoonful. Healthy eaters, don’t worry!

Ingredients to make Tandoori idli:

3 cups idli batter
Fresh coriander leaves, chopped
1 tomato, finely chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
3 tsp Spice Rack All-in-one Smoked Tandoori Spice Mix
Wingreens Mint Mayo

Steps to make Tandoori idlis:

1. Grease the idli mould and pour batter into it. Steam the idlis in a steamer or pressure cooker till they are fluffy (about 10 minutes). If you are using a pressure cooker, add a little water to the cooker and then cover with a lid. Remove the whistle so steam can escape during the cooking process.
2. In the meantime, add the chopped onion to a hot pan with some oil. Cook on medium-high heat until the onions are soft, about 5 minutes.
3. Add the tomatoes, Smoked Tandoori Spice Mix, and a little salt. Cook for another 5-10 minutes until the masala is thick and the tomatoes are cooked through. Add 2 tbsp of water and mix well.
4. Remove the idlis from the steamer and chop them into bite sized pieces. In case you are making mini idlis, feel free to skip this step.
5. Add them to the pan with the masala and mix until each piece is well coated.
6. Serve the idlis with Wingreens Mint Mayo.
