Start by preparing the batter for the idlis. For this, wash the urad dal and idli rice and soak them separately in water with methi seeds. Keep it aside for an hour or two.
Once done, grind them separately to form a smooth batter. Combine them together, add salt, mix well, and let it sit for a few hours.
Now, heat oil in a pan, add jeera, and allow it to splutter. Add in the onions and sauté well before adding in the palak, paneer, ginger, chillies, and salt. Cook for a few minutes, and then turn off the flame.
Grease the idli moulds with oil and pour the idli batter into them. After this, place the palak batter on it. Make sure not to add too much.
Steam the idlis for around 10-15 minutes, then serve hot and enjoy!
