Again a healthy start for a bright week with soft softier idlies. Actually there is a secret behind my recipe ;) as i bought a new wet grinder yesterday i can't wait to start and so right away prepared Idlies. This time i used idly rice instead of using idly rava. I normally make idlies with idly rava but here in Coimbatore Idly rice is sold widely. So for a change i made idlies with the Idly rice. This is the first time i used this rice and it came out very very well :) .
Whole urad dal or split - 1 cup
Idly rice - 2 cup
normal ricee - 1/2 cup
salt - as required
Soak urad dal and rice separately for 3- 4 hours. Grind it to a smooth paste adding water in between. The batter should be medium not too thick and not too thin. Take out in a big bowl as it ferment and raise. Keep aside for overnight or atleast 7 hrs .Check if the batter raise. Now add salt ans mix well. Grease the idly plates, pour the batter in the idly plates ans cook for 8-10 mins or until done. Serve with peanut chutney .
Note: I usually soak dal and rice in the afternoon and at night like before 9:00 grind the batter and leave the batter overnight to ferment. The next morning the batter raises and is ready to make idly, dosa, utappam. :)
