A South Indian breakfast food, but delicious any time of day. Its light and easy to make. Steamed and best enjoyed with sambar and chutneys.

Ingredients of Rice Idli

  • 3 cups rice - preferably par boiled (sela)
  • 1 cup split and husked dhuli urad
  • 2 tsp salt

How to Make Rice Idli

  1. Soak the rice and lentil in water separately for 5-6 hours.
  2. Grind the lentil to a fine smooth paste, and the rice a little coarse (enough to feel a texture, like fine sand).
  3. Mix the two ground ingredients with salt and enough water to form a batter of dropping consistency.
  4. Leave, covered, in a warm place to ferment to a spongy batter, overnight.
  5. Steam in an idli steamer and serve hot.
