    Preparation Method:


    Soak the black gram for 5 hours. Then grind it into a smooth paste.


    Add the idli Rava and salt to the grounded paste and mix it properly to form the idli batter. Let this ferment for 8 hours/overnight.


    Now add in the grated beetroot, grated carrot, greens and cumin seeds to it. Stir it gently so that the batter is not disturbed.


    Take a flat bottomed shallow vessel (Steel/ Aluminum) and grease it with ghee till the rim of the vessel. Fill half of this vessel with the prepared batter.


    Place the filled vessel in an Idli container/cooker and steam for 10 minutes on a medium flame. Then for the next 5 minutes on a low flame.


    Turn off the stove and let it cool for 5 minutes.


    Transfer this carefully onto a greased plate and cut it into sandal shapes.


    To garnish, cut two semi-circle pieces of parboiled carrot such that one small semi-circular shaped carrot piece is placed as a toe and the other slice as the ankle.


    Join the two pieces with the help of any parboiled green stalk.


    Serve these colorful and healthy idlis hot with peanut/ coconut chutney.

    Now tasty Idli Sandals is ready to serve.
