Instructions
  1. Soak the ingredients together for about 4 - 6 hours.
  2. Wash well.
  3. Grind well in a mixer using little water.
  4. Rinse the mixer with water after grinding the whole mix and add this to the ground mix.
  5. Add salt(around 2 tsp) and mix the batter well with clean hands for about 5 mins.
  6. Leave it to ferment overnight.
  7. Grease the idli moulds with little oil & pour one ladle of batter into each mould.

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.
