You will need:

  • 1 cup whole ragi/ragi flour

  • 1 cup cooked rice(optional)

  • oil to grease the idli tray

Step 1:

Soak urad dal separately in water.

Step 2:

Soak rice, ragi, fenugreek seeds together in warm water.

Step 3:

I prefer overnight soaking. Should soak it for minimum 6 to 8 hours .

Step 4:

Grind urad dal separately till it become very soft and attain paste like texture.. Add less water when grinding urad dal.

Step 5:

Grind the rice, ragi, fenugreek seeds together. Add cooked rice to this mixture if you are adding it.. Grind it to a fine paste.

Step 6:

Mix this rice, ragi mixture to the urad dal mixture. Add salt and mix it with your hands. Allow it to ferment overnight or minimum 5 hours inside the oven or in a warm place.

Step 7:

Allow water to boil in the pressure cooker or idli cooker. Grease the idli trays with oil and pour this batter onto the idli trays.

Place these trays in the cooker and cook it for 10 mins . Do not use whistle.

Serve it with idli chutney powder, lamb curry, spicy chicken curry.
