Steamed Rice Cake
Recipe by Rajiv Anand of Santa Clara, US
Fermentation is the key in making idlis. Another point is the consistency.
The mixture should not be either too loose nor too hard.
when u r fermenting a batter overnight . u don't need soda because soda also ferment the batter.
Can anyone tell me how to prepare idlis without using mixer grinder for making Dal Rice paste.
Any type of readymade available flour if mixed can we prepare idlis ?
You can as well add blackpepper corns(only 3 to 4 should be added to each idli batter)
how could you make idli without adding soda?
try adding 1/2 cups of poha to the batter while grinding.also reduce the dal rice ratio to 1:4.soak rice for 4hours with 1tbsp methi seeds and dal for not more than 1hour.HAPPY EATING FOLKS!!
what about, soda? Dont u add that?
for making better rice idli ,u should use sela or idli rice .
If you are in a cold country like US, in winter the fermentation may not occur even if you keep out for 8 to 10 hours. So keep the dal paste in oven and warm it a little bit. Switch off the over after an hour, keep the dal paste over night( 8 - 10 hr).
