Sanna idli(savory cabbage idli) a konkani delicacy

Sanna idli is a konkani dish.We have it along with rice and dal for lunch or dinner.It is different from the normal idli.It is spicy and stuffed with cabbage and onion.You can prepare this with or without cabbage also.

Dosa rice -1cup
Cabbage-11/2 cups( chopped finely)
Onion-1 big(chopped finely)
Coconut-1cup (grated)
Red chilly dry-7-8(roasted in tsp of oil)
Red chilly powder-2tsp
Tamarind-1 marble sized ball
Salt to taste


  • Soak dal and rice together for 3-4 hours.
  • After 4hours drain the water and grind rice-dal mixture along with coconut,red chillies and tamarind to a coarse paste(rava consistency ).
  • Now add salt,cabbage and onion .
  • Batter should be little thicker than dosa batter.
  • Now grease the idli cup and steam it in a cooker with out the whistle for 30 mins or till cooked . Just check  by pricking knife or fork for double sure .If it is cooked then the knife will come out clean otherwise cook further few more mins.

Note:-Same you can prepare with the idli rava.Then no need to soak with dal .Just grind dal along  with coconut,red chillies and tamarind and mix this to rava( washed and soaked for 10 mins).
Serve along with dal and rice.We put coconut oil while serving.
