Idli Rice cake

Ingredients

Many people use Idli rava (rice sooji) for making idlis. But in this
method rice is used directly.
Ingredients
Urad dal – 3/4th cup
Rice – 2 cups
Poha/puffed rice – 1/4th cup
A pinch of salt
Baking soda

Preparation

1
Soak rice and daal in separate containers for 4-5 hours (preferably previous afternoon)
2
Just 15 minutes before grinding, soak poha.
3
Grind the urad daal to a very smooth batter (Do not add too much water, just add as much as needed).Set this aside.
4
Now grind the rice and poha. Again dont add more water. Grind this till you get a very fine rava-like consistency of the rice in the batter.
5
Now mix the 2 batters, add some salt and keep the batter overnight in a warm place.(Take care to use a big container here as the volume of the batter increases after fermentation)
6
In the morning add a little baking soda 15 mins before cooking.
7
Grease the idli-stand with a little oil and steam the idlis for about 15 minutes. Open the idli cooker after 5-10 mins and the idlis are ready !!!
8
Preparation time: 30 minutes + Leave overnight
9
Cooking time: 20 minutes
