I have been cooking with Fresh Garbazo beans since the last two days.These greens have a wonderful taste and one can eat them right out of the pod. anyway today I have made a Rawa Idli  with these beans, let me tell you how...

Idli with Fresh Garbanzo Beans

1 cup sooji
1 cup curd
1/2 cup fresh garbanzo beans 
1 green chilly, crushed
1 tsp ginger paste
1 tbsp oil
1/2 sachet ENO
Salt to taste

Mix sooji and curd .
Pulse the beans for a couple of minute , they should be coarsely ground.
Add crushed beans, ginger paste and green chilly.
Heat oil.
Add salt and enough water to make a semi soft batter.
Let rest for 15 minutes.
Place a pot of water to boil.
Add ENO to the batter and mix well, it will become bubbly.
Immediately pour the batter in a greased idli mould and place it to steam.
These should cook in about 10-12 minutes.
Check by inserting a knife, it should come out clean.
Once done, let cool for 2-3 minutes.
