Idli is a well known South Indian breakfast item. Its a rice based steamed cake. As there's minimal fat usage in the making of Idlis, its considered to be a healthy item and also easily digestable by little tummies as well. Idli-Chutney-Sambar is a must combination in any Indian Restaurant!

Serves:

4-5

Preparation Time:

8 hrs

Cooking Time:

15 mins

Ingredients:

Idli Rava - 2 Cups
 
 Urad Dal - 1 Cup
 
 Salt - 1½ tbsp
 
 Oil for greasing
 

Method:


• Wash Urad Dal in Water nicely and soak it for about 8hrs.

• Drain the Water and grind the dal into a fine paste.

• Wash the Idli Rava and drain all the Water.

• Mix the Dal batter, Idli Rava and Salt well.

• Leave this mixture in a warm place for about 8hrs or overnight to ferment.

• Once the dough is well fermented you can start making the Idlis. You Need an Idli stand to make the Idlis.

• Grease the Idli plates with some Oil and pour about 3/4 full of batter.

• Steam these prepared plates on medium heat for about 10-15mins or till cooked.

• Use a spoon to take off the Idlis from the Idli stand.

• Serve hot with Chutney and Sambar!

Variations: You can use Idly Rice instead of Idli Rava - only thing to keep in mind is to soak the Rice same as Urad Dal. Grind both the Rice and Urad dal separately and then mix it together. Using Idli Rava is a simpler and quicker option.

Testimonial:

"Dear Spices of India, This was the first time I have shopped with you, but will certainly not be the last. My selection has just arrived, very securely packed, less than 24 hours from my online order. Not bad for a free, standard delivery! Many thanks. I was very impressed by the range of stock you carry - many old favourites I have been unable to source locally, plus lots more to explore over time - and in many cases significantly cheaper than their supermarket equivalents (where available). I also found the web site very easy to navigate and informative about the sometimes unfamiliar ingredients."
