Preparation Time: 60 Minutes
Serves: 36 Idli
2 Cups Boiled Rice or any thick Rice
1 Cup Black Gram Dal (urad dal)
¼ Cup Idli Rawa
2 Table spoon Sesame Oil
Salt as per taste
Oil for preparing Idli
Soak the Boiled Rice and Black Gram Dal separately for 6-7 hours. Grind the Rice and Dal to a very fine and thick batter, using water as required and then mix the Salt and Sesame Oil in the batter. Keep the batter aside to ferment for at least 7-8 hours.
Steam in oiled Idli moulds in a pressure cooker for fifteen minutes. Do not stir the batter before filling the moulds. The trapped ait makes fluffy, soft Idles.
Serve hot with Coconut Chutney or Coconut Vegetable Sambar.
