South Indian cuisine brims with simplicity and clean flavors. The dishes have the correct balance of spicy, sour and sweet, making South Indian cuisine one of my personal favorites.
Today we are sharing the recipe of idli, which can be made at home with minimal efforts. This is a very special recipe, which has beaten rice, i.e., poha, urad dal and idli rawa as its base. The standard recipe calls for rice. We are not using rice for this recipe. Idli rawa is a type of semolina especially formulated to make idlis. It is easily available in the market. Idli rawa is coarser than the usual semolina that we use to make sheera or upma. Hence, this idli is also known as rawa idli. Poha on the other hand, will lend the idli an amazing softness.Who wants to cook a lavish and time-consuming meal on a Sunday? Why not make idlis with sambhar or coconut chutney?
Everyone likes round, soft and fluffy idlis dipped in a bowl delicious, hot and steaming sambhar on any day. You just have to do some preparation on the day before. This recipe yields around 20 idlis. You can make idlis using the specialized idli steamer. If you have the idli moulds but not the steamer, you can use pressure cooker to make idlis. You need to remove the whistle off the lid, so that the excess steam will have a way to escape.
Usually it takes 10 to 12 minutes for a batch of idli to get ready. Sometimes, it may take 15 minutes. Idlis should never be steamed for very long. They tend to lose their fluffiness and turn dry and chewy as they cool off. So now let us see how to make delicious idlis at home. Try this Rawa Idli Recipe !
