an idly plate - receipe from vijayalakshmi appliances

6 cups long grain rice
2 cups rice
11/4 cups Urad dhal

Procedure: Soak Long grain rice for 4-6 hours. Soak Urad dhal for just one hour. Grind urad dhal in wet grinder for about 20 minutes. Take out the dough and then grind soaked long grain rice for about 15 to 20 minutes for desired smoothness. Rice should be finely powdered in the dry grinder jar. Mix the rice powder with water to make a thick paste. Mix all the doughs and rice paste with salt. Add water to bring the dough to the right consistency. (it has to be little watery -should fall freely from your hand – the dough thickens as it ferments) Let it ferment overnight and then steam the dough as usual for the softest idlies that melt in your mouth.
