Idli is considered as the most famous south indian dish which is really easy to prepare and health too. Idli can be prepared by two different ways. At first, we can prepare it by using the ready made batter powder which is available in any general store. MTR foods, gits, aroma, etc. instant idli mixtures are available almost everywhere. To the ready made mixture add 1 tbs(tablespoon) of oil(it can be any edible oil) to 1 cup of ready mix. Stir the batter properly so that there are no lumps left in it. Pour the batter either on idli stand of in microwave oven’s vessel which is specially designed for the same. Give 2-3 steams to the batter and your instant idli is cooked.

The second feasible way could be you have to keep the rice grain soaked in water and keep them for fermentation. After it has fermented churn the mixture in the mixture grinder and prepare the  batter and then follow the same procedure as we have followed in the case of instant mix.

Serve it hot with green chutney.


This can be the most nourishing and appetizing dish that could be prepared in a very very less time provided you have kept the dal for many hours to get it soaked or even this takes a longer time, you can take the amount of dal you want to prepare and boil it for 2-5 minutes or just give it a steam in a pressure cooker so that it becomes edible.
