Directions

Step 1

Soak the ingredients together for about 4 - 6 hours.

Step 2

Wash well.

Step 3

Grind well in a mixer using little water.

Step 4

Rinse the mixer with water after grinding the whole mix and add this to the ground mix.

Step 5

Add salt(around 2 tsp) and mix the batter well with clean hands for about 5 mins.

Step 6

Leave it to ferment overnight.

Step 7

Grease the idli moulds with little oil & pour one ladle of batter into each mould.

Step 8

Steam it for 5 - 10 mins till the cooked smell comes out.

Step 9

:- Check for properly cooked idlis by pricking using a knife or fork. If it comes out clean, then the idlis are done.

Step 10

:- Serve hot with sambar and chutney.

Step 11

:- Can use the same batter to make dosa by adding a little more water.

The batter wil not rise if the grinder become hot by grinding for a long time.so pl add some ice or have some break while grinding the batter.
