1 tsp instant dry yeast

Salt to taste

½ cup split skinless green gram (dhuli urad dal), soaked for 30 minutes and drained

¼ tsp asafoetida (hing)

1 tsp coriander powder

½ tsp roasted cumin powder

1 tsp garam masala powder

¾ tsp turmeric powder

¼ cup chopped fresh coriander leaves

Tomato chutney for serving

Ghee for serving

Method:

In a bowl, take whole wheat flour and add instant dry yeast, salt and mix everything together. Then add water and knead into a soft dough and cover with a muslin cloth. Keep the dough aside for twenty minutes. To make the stuffing, grind urad dal to a coarse mix and add asafoetida, coriander powder, roasted cumin powder, garam masala powder, turmeric powder, salt and coriander. Divide the dough into equal portions and roll them into balls. Then make a cavity in the middle, add the stuffing and seal the cavity by gathering the edges. In a steamer, heat water and steam the Siddu for about fifteen minutes. Serve the Siddu hot with tomato chutney and ghee.
