If it is dense then add little water in it.Once the batter is ready mix veggies like carrots, capsicum, green coriander, green chilies and tsp salt, then keep the batter aside for 15 minutes to set. Meanwhile grate some paneer.

Then ready the idli stand for making the idlis , taken a stand and put a little oil in the moulds and grease them.Put a little water in a cooker and let it boil, add ½ to 2 cup water in the cooker, turn on the flame, and let the water boil, cover it so that the water boils easily.Add 1 tsp eno fruit salt to the batter, pour 1 tsp water over it, do not stir it too much, nor for too long, just mix it till the eno mixes well.

Once the batter is ready, fill the mould with the batter, arrange the moulds in the stands, we have used a little less than ½ cup water in it, screw them well ,place the stand in the cooker, and close the cooker, make sure you have removed the whistle from the cooker lid. Cook the idli on medium flame for 10 to 12 minutes .

After 12 minutes, check the Idli. To check it,poke the idli in the middle , check if the knife comes out clean, then the idli is ready.Cover your hands with a cloth, and take out the idli stand like this and keep it, open and separate the moulds, so that the idli cools down quickly,

Once cool take out the idlis with the help of a knife.For making them more sumptuous add some tempering over them.

For it, heat the tadka pan, add 1 tbsp oil to it, let the oil heat up, then add mustard seeds in the oil, we have taken ¼ tsp black mustard seeds. Roast the mustard seeds well, turn off the flame, then put curry leaves into it and put the tempering over the idlis.

Mouth drooling and spongy Paneer idli is ready. It can be served with coconut chutney, tomato sauce, peanut chutney or any chutney of your choice. Serve it as a snack; I am sure everyone will relish eating it specially kids.
