Make a batter

Put curd, roasted semolina, and a cup of water in a bowl. To make a smooth batter, add salt to taste and whisk thoroughly. Allow it to rest for ten minutes.

Make beetroot paste

Beetroot should be peeled and roughly chopped. Blend the beetroot chunks in a blender to create a paste.

Mix beetroot paste with idli batter

The idli batter will become pink once you add the beetroot paste and thoroughly combine. Add 1/4 cup of water if you think the batter is too thick.

Steam the idlis

Pour the batter into the idli moulds after greasing them. Steam the moulds for 12 to 14 minutes in the steamer.

Serve hot

Your beetroot idlis are now ready for serving after being properly steam-cooked. Enjoy with some chutney and sambhar.
