Total Time : 25 Min


Serves : 6
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp. salt or to taste

  • 1/4 tsp. cardamom powder

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

  • 1/2 cup chilled butter

  • 1/4 cup milk or as required

  • 1 tbsp. melted butter / ghee

  • 1 tsp. sliced pistachio


  • In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cardamom powder. Then add the butter and mix well so that it now resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add the cardamom powder and milk, little at a time and knead into a dough. Divide into small equal portions. Give a round flat shape to each of them and make few slits with a knife.
  • Place a pinch of the sliced pista in the centre and arrange them in a greased idli stand. Place the salt in the bottom of a pressure cooker and place a stand over it.
  • Preheat the cooker on a medium flame for 10 minutes. Now gently place the idli stand in it and close with the lid, but without the vent.
  • Cook on a low flame for 10-15 minutes. Keep checking for doneness. Switch off the flame and let it remain as it is for another 5 minutes.
  • Brush with some melted butter / ghee and cool them on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container. Serve as a tea-time snack or as and when desired.
