Idly, a very simplest and healthiest South Indian breakfast. The recipe that I have shared is made with idly rava. Idly can be made even with idly rice. It tastes good with chutney or sambar.
2 Cups Idly Rava, 1 Cup Urad Dal, Soda, Salt to Taste
How to prepare:
Clean and wash idly rava. Soak idly rava and urad dal in separate containers for about 4-5 hours. Grind the soaked urad dhal with little water to smooth paste. Now, mix idly rava, ground urad dal and soda together. Keep it aside for 8 hours or overnight for fermentation. Add salt and little water if required to the batter.
Grease the idly moulds with little oil. Pour the idly mix in the moulds and steam for about 10 minutes. To check if the idlys are done put a tooth pick into the idly. If the idlys are cooked, the tooth pick will be clean. Serve idly with sambar, coconut chutney or tomato chutney.
