Hi this is my 200th successful post, thanks to all you lovely blogger buddies
who have encouraged me and boosted me to continue blogging and post various
recipes. A big hug and thanks to all of you out there and please keep encouraging me
as usual.


Boiled rice - 3 measures

Raw rice - 1 measure

Urad dal - 1 measure

Onion - i

Green chilly - 2 (cut into small pieces)

Ginger - 1 small piece (grated)

Coriander leaves

Salt as required


Soak rice and Urad dal separately for 6 hrs. ( Urad dal just for 2 hrs)

Drain the water and grind the rice separately to a smooth paste.

Grind the urad dal to a smooth paste.

Mix the rice and dal batter together.

Add salt and mix the batter from the bottom nicely.

Leave the batter to ferment overnight.

Next day cut 1 onion into small pieces,green chillies into small pieces,grate the

ginger and cut the coriander leaves into small pieces and mix in the batter. Stir fry the onion

pieces in a little oil and add with the other items in the batter.

Take the idly mould and grease the hollow portions with little oil and pour the batter

into each hollow and steam in the pressure cooker for 20-25 minutes.

After the idly is cooked remove and put in a vessel.
