- YieldServes 13
- 4 cup parboil rice(pulungal rice in tamil) or Idli rice
- 1 hand full raw rice
- 1 cup urud dal
- 1 teaspoon fenugreek
Soak both the rice for 6 hours.
Soak urud dal and fenugreek for one hour
Grind urud dal and fenugreek for 15 mins until it comes bluffy (don’t add more water, sprinkle the water in the necessary time)
Add this urud batter in the separate vessel
Grind the rice by adding enough water into a fine paste
Add these two mixtures in the vessel and mix well without lumps
Keep it in room temperature for about an hour and keep it in refrigerator.
It will help to make the batter for enough sour taste to make perfect Idli
After 6 hours take the batter outside and keep it until it attains normal room temperature
Now take the batter and fill it in the Idli pot and steam it for 7 mins.
Now we can get fluffy and spongy Idli
Now tasty Sambar Idli is ready to serve.
