Idli with Sambhar

Hello Friends ...

Back to the blogging after one week gap ......Today's recipe is my son's favourite dish Idli with Sambhar.
He can have idli in all his main course. I always keep the batter ready in my fridge, no idea when will he demand for it.
Its very easy and healthy food for kids and adults too. Idlis are served with sambhar or chutney.

2 cups parboiled rice or normal rice
1 cup urad dal
Salt taste
1 tbsp oil
1/4 tsp fenugreek seeds for flavor (optional)

  1. Soak urad dal and rice with fenugreek seeds separately in water for 8-10 hrs or overnight.
  2. Grind the ingredients one by one in a mixer to make a smooth paste.
  3. Keep adding water according to the requirement.
  4. Now put both the paste in a large bowl and mix well.
  5. Add salt and mix nicely.
  6. Keep it aside for 6-7 hrs for fermentation.
  7. Grease the idli stand with little oil. 
  8. Pour the mixture into the greased idli stand.
  9. Pour 1 1/2 cups of water in the pressure cooker and then place the stand for a 10-15 minutes in a cooker without weight for steaming or in a rice cooker.
  10. To check whether idlis are cooked insert a knife in the middle of the idli, if it comes out clean then your idlis are ready to serve.
  11. Carefully take out the stand and remove the idlis using the spoon.
  12. Serve hot with Sambhar and chutney.

Note : If you add beaten rice (poha) while grinding rice, it will make your idlis   very soft.
Consistency of the batter should not be too thick or too watery.
