Softest & Spongy Idli Batter Recipe | Idli without a Steamer
2 cups rice (I used normal rice)
1/2 cup urad dal
1cup precooked rice
Salt as needed
2 cups water (Approx.)
1/4 tsp baking soda
Wash the rice and urad dal until the water runs clear, then add precooked rice.
Add enough water and soak for 3-4 hours.
Drain the water again and grind coarsely along with 2 cups of water (Approx.)
Pour it into a big container. Add salt and baking soda, mix well.
Leave this batter to ferment overnight. Next morning stir well the batter (Add a little water if required).
Pour into greased idli moulds keep that aside.
In a pressure cooker add 2 cups of water and place the moulds, cover and cook without the weight for 10-12 mins for super soft and spongy idlis.
