Idli is a popular south indian breakfast. It is healthy and makes an ideal food for the day. It is the favourite of most children and makes a good snack for their box.
Today, various kinds of idlis are prepared. I am giving you the easiest method today.
The ingredients that you need are:
1 bowl of urad dal
2 bowl of idli semolina ( available in the super market)
Wash the urad dal and soak in water for one and a half hour.
Grind into a fine paste by using adequate amount of water.
Soak the semolina in water for ten minutes.
Mix it with the ground batter.
Keep it in a warm place for eight hours. It needs to ferment.
The next day, add salt to the water and mix it . If the consistency is thick, add some water.
Pour the batter into idli moulds and cook it in a idli pan or pressure cooker.
It normally requires twenty minutes to be done. At first, keep it on a medium flame,later reduce it. Idlis are ready to serve.
Serve hot with chutney and sambar.
