Idli

Idli

 

Ingredients

Black gram 2 cups
Idli Rice 4 cups
Salt to taste

Preparation Method

Soak the black gram and rice separately in two different bowls, for approximately four hours prior to grinding it into a paste. Grind the ingredients  separately   into a fine paste by adding sufficient water. Add salt to taste and blend the dough well and keep it overnight for fermentation. Next morning once again, mix the dough with a spoon and  pour in scoops on the Idli tray and steam it for five minutes. 

Tips:

  • Cooking oil can be applied on the tray, before the dough is poured into the same, so its easier to take the cooked idlis from the tray.  

  • To make the idli soft, add two table spoons of cooked rice while grinding the rice.

  • One table spoon of Fenugreek may be added for extra flavor.
