Happy new year to all , I wish and pray for success and prosperity to follow in this new year .
Let me start my fisrt post of this year with a healthy note.We all know steamed food and that too if it happen to be idli its very good and healthy.But making idli need a batter which invloves a long procedure of soaking,grinding and fermenting.Many people complain for not getting soft idli and hence they avoid making the batter at home.
Prepartion time : 10 mins
cooking time 15 mins
makes : 10 idlis
- Idli rava- 1 cup
- poha/aval-1\2 cup ( thin variety)
- yogurd/curd- 1 cup (sour curd)
- bakig soda- 1\4 tsp ( optional)
- water-as needed
- salt- to taste
1.Coarsely powder the poha.Add curd to it and keep for 2 mins.
2.Add idli rava to it.Add in salt and baking soda.add water and make a dropping consistency batter.Keep for another 2-3 mins.
3.Grease idli pan , pour batter into it and steam cook it.
4.When done remove from heat and demould from the idli plate.
