Idli / Mini Idli

My blog will be incomplete without Idli and Dosa recipes. So here I am posting the most popular South Indian breakfast Idli.

Nowadays, you get so many varieties of idli's in restaurants namely Rava Idli, Mini Idli, Vegetable Idli, Masala Idli, Malige Idli, Idli Fry and so on.

Now coming back to the basic idli and mini idli's,  here's the recipe...

Idli Rava - 3 cups

Salt to taste


1. Soak Urad dal for atleast 3 hours.

2. Grind it to a smooth paste.

3. Wash Idli rava and add urad dal paste to this. Mix well and allow it to ferment over night.

4. Add salt and mix well. Pour this batter into greased idli moulds and steam for 10 mins in idli cooker.

5. Serve these hot and spongy idli's with Sambar or chutney.
