boiled rice - 1 cup
Raw rice - 1 cup
Urad dal - 1/2 cup
Methi seeds ( fenugreek seeds) 1/4 tsp


Soak rice, urad dal,methi seeds separately for atleast 5-6 hours.First grind the urad dal and remove it in a vessel and grind rice into a paste using enough water. Add salt to this batter as per your taste and mix well.Cover the vessel and keep it in dry place to ferment over night.

To prepare Idlis:

The next morning, carefully stir the batter as it would've risen due to fermentation.Grease the idli stand with little oil and spoon enough batter into them. I steam idlis in idli cooker.steam for 20-30 minutes or until done.Once the idlis are done,remove the idlis from the idli stand. Dish out the idlis with a knife, run it in circular motion around edges of the idlis.Serve the Idlis with any chutney of your choice.
i prefer with onion chutney.
