How to Make Idly Batter


Par Boiled Rice

4 Cup

Urad Dal

1 Cup

Fenugreek Seeds

1 tbs


4 tbs


1. Wash and soak the rice for 4 -5 hours.

2. Wash and soak the dal for 2 hours.

3. Wash and soak the fenugreek seeds along with the dal.

4. Keep the urad dal in the fridge for ½ an hour or sprinkle cold water during grinding ( so that the batter becomes more fluffy).

5. Keep grinding the urad dal for minimum ½ an hour and also keep sprinkling the water intermittently.

6. Grind the rice till it is smooth (90% is enough).

7. Mix both off the batter together with salt and keep it 8-10 hours or overnight for fermentation.

8. After 8-10 hours, the batter would have become fluffy. Add water if you need.
