Idlis are always welcome by everyone be it kids or elders or anybody,as they are soft and easily digestible and can be taken even when you are sick.They are Energy Boosters to start your day,and that too with a tasty chutney…..who would say No…
Try this combination of chutney with Idlis…Slight variation from Normal peanut or coconut chutney.
Here I prepared Idlis with Batter of urad dal and boiled rice,they came out so well and soft…before I used dosa batter only for Idlis too even they are soft so its your wish to do whatever pleases you to your comfort and Family Tastes….
To prepare Idli Batter
Boiled rice – 3 1/2 cups
Urad dal – 1 1/2 cups
Cooked rice or Poha (Atukulu) – 1/2 cup
Wash both rice and dal together and soak for about 8 hrs,As we are using Boiled Rice it needs a longer soaking time .
Now drain and grind coarsely adding cooked rice or soaked poha.
Keep in a tight and large container for fermentation.Atleast 6-8 hrs.Or overnight.
The next day take how much you need and add salt,1 pinch of baking soda and 2tsps of water and mix well.
Grease the Idli trays and pour batter into each tray and stack in the idli cooker and steam for about 12-15 mins.
Open and let stand for 5 mins so that they come out well.Remove each Idli carefully and place into a hot box or dish covered.
Serve with this Tomato Garlic Chutney and Ghee if desired…
