I use the dosai batter to make iddly...normally I don't grind separately for preparing iddly. Yet it's tasty.....



4 cup parboiled rice
2 cup white urad dal
1 tsp fenugreek seeds
Ice water for grinding
1tsp of baking soda

Preparation Methods:

Wash the rices and dal together. Add plenty of water and fenugreek seeds. Allow to soak overnight in the fridge Rewash the rice by draining the water. Grind to a coarsely batter paste,keep aside in a warm place for 8-10 hours.

To the batter, add more water if required. The consistency of the batter should be thick enough to thickly coat on a spoon when dipped. Add 1tsp of baking soda to the batter and mix well. Grease the iddly plate with oil and pour a big spoonful of the batter.

Steam cook for 15-20 minutes till they are done..Always let the idlly to cool for few minutes before you take them out. They will be soft and fluffy. Enjoy these soft fluffy iddlies with sambar or chutney or even with fish curry.
