|Urad dal||1 Cup (16 tbs) (black gram beans)|
|Idly rava powder||2 Cup (32 tbs)|
|Fenugreek seeds||1 Teaspoon|
1.Soak Urad dal in water overnight.
2.Drain the water and keep the drained water aside.
3.Grind the dal into a smooth batter then add idly rava powder which was soaked in water for an hour and blend it for a min.
4.Remove the batter into a vessel and make sure there is not lumps.
5.Usually after this we have to wait for the batter to ferment but here we can directly add salt and mix the batter well.
6.Add water if necessary.The consistency should be like condensed milk.
7.Then rub oil in the idly plates so that the idly doesn't stick after its cooked.
8.Fill the plates with the batter and steam it for 15 minutes or until steam comes out.
9.To check if the idly is cooked touch the idly and if it doesn't stick then its done.
10.Remove all the idlis and serve with any side dish.
I like it with the Easy Chicken curry or with any Indian side dish like Coconut chutney or sambar.
