Instructions Soak the ingredients together for about 4 - 6 hours. Wash well. Grind well in a mixer using little water. Rinse the mixer with water after grinding the whole mix and add this to the ground mix. Add salt(around 2 tsp) and mix the batter well with clean hands for about 5 mins. Leave it to ferment overnight. Grease the idli moulds with little oil & pour one ladle of batter into each mould. Steam it for 5 - 10 mins till the cooked smell comes out. :- Check for properly cooked idlis by pricking using a knife or fork. If it comes out clean, then the idlis are done. :- Serve hot with sambar and chutney. :- Can use the same batter to make dosa by adding a little more water.
