What should we add to idli batter to get idlis white?
By jabast from Pune, India
2 cups Rice
1 cup Urad Daal (white)
1 1/2 Tbsp. Salt
A pinch of Baking Soda
Oil for greasing
How to make idli sambhar:
Pick, wash and soak the daal overnight or for 8 hours. Pick, wash and drain the rice. Grind it coarsely in a blender.
Grind the daal into a smooth and forthy paste. Now mix the grinded rice and daal together into a batter.
Mix salt and set aside in a warm place for 8-9 hours or overnight for fermenting. Idlis are ready to be cooked when the batter is well fermented.
Grease the idle holder or pan well and fill each of them with 3/4th full of batter.
Steam cook idlis on medium flame for about 10 minutes or until done.
Use a butter knife to remove the idlis. Is this what you are looking for? Good luck.
