Soft Idli | Breakfast Recipes!

Idli is a popular breakfast/tiffin in South India. I know I am too late in posting this, I thought I had already posted this plain idli. But I have posted previously Masala IdliThalicha Idli, Chillied Idli and Rava Idli.

These Idlis are soft, you can also say Mallipoo Idli.

Idli Rice/ இட்லி அரசி - 5 cups(see notes)
Whole Urad dal/ முழு உளுத்தம்  பருப்பு- 1 cup
Fenugreek seeds/வெந்தயம் - 1- 2 tspns
Salt/ உப்பு

Preparation Method
Soak all the ingredients except salt for 6-8 hours in water. You can also soak rice separately and dals separately.
Grind it to coarse or fine paste with water in a mixer/grinder.
If you soaking separately, grind urad dal first to fine paste and then grind rice. Add salt and mix well by laddle or hand.
Leave it outside overnite for fermentation.
Grease idli plates with நல்ல எண்ணை/ Gingely Oil. Pour the batter and close the lid. Steam it for 12-15 mins. Check with a spoon or fork. If it comes out clean. Off the stove.
Allow it to cool a bit and then remove from the plates.

Delicious Soft Idlis are ready to Serve. Enjoy it with Sambar or Chutney.

1. You can keep only required amount of batter outside for fermentation and balance in fridge. Can use the same batter for Dosas too.
2. You can also use the ratio 4:1.
3. Idli rice - it is available in all indian stores and mustafa.
4. For Dosa and idli fermentation is vimportant.
5. I have grinded in Mixie, so add ice water so mixie is not hot.
