IDLI


Idli is supposed to be one of the healthiest breakfasts in the world. It is also the most popular one and my favourite among the South Indian breakfast items.

Ingredients:
Raw rice ....... 2 cups
Parboiled rice or idli rice ......... 1 cup
Urad dal ......... 1 cup
Cooked rice .... 2-3 tbsps
Salt ................. to taste

Method:
1. Soak the rice and dal separately for at least 4-5 hours.
2. Grind them separately adding a little water and salt to taste.
3. Mix everything together and let the dough ferment preferably overnight or until it is risen well.
4. Grease the idli moulds and pour the batter in each mould little less than the rim. Steam for 10-12 minutes.
Remove the idlis and serve hot with chutney and Sambar.

  5. Absolutely agree with idli being one of the healthiest breakfast option. My recipe is quite similar to yours except I dont add any cooked rice and use soaked methi seeds for the soft idli texture. Great share.

  6. Idli is one dish I have never mastered. It's such a light but filling dish to have for breakfast. Your recipe makes it sound easy to make so I will save it to make soon.

  7. Your idli looks light and fluffy.I am going to try this recipe as I only make with the dhal and idli rice combination so will need to buy par boiled rice to try your recipe.
