How to make idli dosa batter, south Indian idli

How to make idli dosa batter
Learn how to make south Indian idli dosa batter authentically with stepwise pictures, tips and tricks to get perfect idli and dosa with same batter.
For who knows  grinding and making idlies, this post may be silly,as its not a big deal for those who are used to prepare idli dosa batter religiously every once in a while. But I have some friends and I know so many who have never made or seen someone making, and want to try out at home. For them its really a big big project. Even, before I started doing this regularly, I found it very complicated and took some time for getting the correct method of grinding and everything. But now its no big deal for me…Not only this,everything right from cooking, if we see from outside, or if we are just learners,it seems to be a big task and it will be looking more complicated, but if we do regularly, by practice, everything becomes so easy and perfect! Its all about experience… For me before marriage,I found all these grinding and mixing works found to be messy (especially the batter mixing process and washing the grinderSick)and I have told my mom many times that, In my life I would never do this, rather I will keep a servant to make all these messy things……and nowSighTongue

Idli recipe - soft idli authentic way

Hope I could cover the doubts we get,during this idli making process. All the experts out there,please don't waste your time :) this is purely for beginners! And if you have any doubt in this process, please feel free to write to me in the Email ID that you can find in my blogger profile! By posting this,I am not claiming that I am an expert in making Idli, just posting what I know, How I do Nerd. Don't get panic by seeing the elaborate post - I have just wrote it elaborate to that it will be easy for beginners. As you keep making, you will learn the knack to get perfect soft idli. It comes handy through out the week for breakfast and dinner.


Idli recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Breakfast
Prep Time: 30 mins + soaking time 3 hrs    |  Cook time: 10 mins    

Ingredients

Idli rice - 3 cups

Urad dal  - 1/2 cup*

Fenugreek seeds/ vendhayam - 1/2 tsp

Water - as needed

Salt - As needed (3 & 3/4 tsp)

 *Varies according to the quality
Idly rice is different from the regular rice. Idly rice is parboiled rice and it looks shorter and stouter than the ordinary rice we use for eating. 
I got a request from one of my reader friend to show the measuring cups I use,so here is it, 1 cup holds 250 ml.(only for this post)

1cup,1/2 cup,1/3 cup,1/4 cup,1/8 cup

Method

  1. Wash, soak rice in a vessel.Urad dal + fenugreek seeds in another vessel for minimum 3 hrs.
  2. Drain water, grind urad dal first. Use ice cold water for grinding.
  3. Add 1/2 cup water initially grind for 4 minutes. Stand near by and use the plastic spatula to wipe the dal, to ensure no dal or fenugreek seeds gets stuck to the side walls of the grinder container.
  4. How to make idli step 1
  5. After this, sprinkle water at regular interval as needed.(Will need water more or less depending upon the quality of dal). The batter will be light, fluffy and have microbubbles when seen keenly. Refer notes for more tips.
  6. How to make idli step 2
  7. Collect the ground urad dal batter in a big container, that is enough to hold the raising fermented batter the next day.
  8. Now drain the water in the rice and add the rice little by little while your wet grinder is running(this is to avoid the grinder getting stuck because of over loading).  Add enough water for the grinder to run smoothly. Use the spatula to wipe off the sides at regular intervals.. Add more water when the grinder runs slowly and batter gets heated. Grind till it is smooth or a little coarse (whichever consistency you prefer, I personally grind smooth). Add more water if its needed. It takes about 25-30 mins approximately. Time may vary,check it out.
  9. How to make idli step 3
  10. Transfer this rice batter to the urad dal batter and add salt and mix well with your hands.
  11. How to make idli step 4
  12. Keep closed in a warm place for fermenting minimum of 12-14 hrs. I soak around 1.00 PM,grind around 4.00 PM and keep over night and make idly for the morning breakfast. The next day morning it will be fermented and raised in quantity. A well fermented batter gives,soft and tasty Idlies. Hope you can see the batter raised and see the batter standing stiff like a foam.
  13. How to make idli step 5
  14. The consistency should be like this to get a spongy soft idli. If its heavy and not fluffy and light, then idlies also will turn hard.I have my Idly pot given by my MIL,its gives soft idlies which after getting cold too doesn't form a layer(dry).
  15. How to make idli step 6
  16. I use cloth in it to cook the idlies, you can make with the ordinary idli cooker too. When you use idli plate without cloth in the idli cooker,grease the idli plates with sesame oil before pouring the batter. After it gets cooked, you have to take it out and let it sit for 1 minute so that the idli comes out without sticking to the plate. Steaming idli will take around 8-10 minutes.
  17. How to make idli step 7

Some Notes:

  • I grind urad dal first,but my MIL says if ground in larger quantity,urad dal batter,if ground and kept first has tendency to become watery. But as I grind only 1/2 cup , I grind Urad dal first.(Its because,if we grind rice lastly,its easy to wash Tonguethe grinder )
  • The steps I have given only the water quantity and the time it took for the urad dal I have,so take it as a rough idea and use water accordingly and grind till you get a smooth batter!
  • If your urad dal is not a good quality,the batter will become watery and it will not be white comparatively.
  • You can only test the quality of urad dal by grinding it,so if the first time you don't get volume and the idly turns hard,next time just increase the quantity,for me I usually add double the amount mentioned if its not a good quality.(Add more water while grinding,even if it becomes bit watery).
  • If the urad dal quality is not so good, You can soak either sago or aval/poha/rice flakes 1/4 cup,along with rice which makes idlies more softer. Also adding 1/2 cup of cooked rice while you grind rice makes idly softer.
  • Even if you buy a good quality urad dal,it will give you more volume only for 2-3 months,old dal won't give volume..So dont buy in bulk and keep. 
  • Cooking time of the idlies just differs,it depends on the size of the idly pot,approximately 8-12 minutes.. Mine is a tiny with only two plates,so it takes hardly 5 mins :)
  • Don’t stir the batter when you make idlies. If idli falls flat, you can consider stirring slightly. 
  • If idli falls too flat (chappai) then that means urad dal quantity is too much.
  • I make first two days idlies (after we keep in fridge,the batter raised will again shrink a bit in volume),and the remaining batter dosa,utappam or paniyaram…
  • The batter if you grind in proper way,will be light and frothy,which gives you a soft idly. If the batter itself is heavy,then you get idlies in harder side. That means you have to add more water in urad dal batter next time you grind.
  • Make sure to grind the rice batter not too watery. Add water more for urad dal batter only.
My kid loves both idli and dosa. This batter is perfect for making idli, dosa and uthappam too. For making dosa, you have to spoon required amount of batter and mix little(very little) water and mix well. Then make dosa. This is for even spreading and to get golden brown dosa! Here is a video to help.



Here’s my dosa with sambar, Mint chutney, and Idli podi :)

    I hear that putting a cloth layer when steaming the idlis makes them softer - I don't do it though because of the work involved in cleaning the cloth! :)

  32. Wonderful post dear.. Perfect step by steps pics, useful notes and Perfect Mallipooo Idlis.. The entire platter looks so delectable.... I am really craving for this now...It has been months since I made idlis.. blame it on SBD.. sobs...
    I have heard and seen that making Idli's in the old fashioned way (like your idli maker) is the best way to get "The Real" soft idlis. My ex-neighbor has this one and she makes delicious idlis. Even back home we use the same thing. But here I make it with pressure cooker without whistle, though my idlis are softer I wouldn't say it feels that soft or tastes as good as the one made with this idli maker. This is one thing that I want to purchase during my India visit.

    ReplyDelete
  33. That's a wonderful post for beginners..Totally loved the step wise pics and would be really useful for newbie's..I'll surely share the link with my friends who ask to write a post about making idli..It can't be written more perfectly !!!!

  39. Thanks so much for the informative post. Your tip on the parboiled rice for eating not being the same as idly rice is very informative. I once used parboiled rice and the batter was a sticky mess. I will definitely try using your recipe. Do you make idlis using raw rice? What proportion do you use for that?

    ReplyDelete
  40. nice tutorial raji! both idli&dosa looks great! :)

  49. Hi jeya, that red colour chutney,we call it red chutney too,I recently tried after my kiddo wanted the hotel style chutney, its very simple one, I grind 1 medium onion and 2 small tomatoes and then I temper with mustard,urad dal and curry leaves in a kadai and pour this ground onion tomato in it and add 3/4 tsp of red chilli powder and boil for a minute or two in medium flame.Thats it very easy and handy!

  64. Do you soak idli rice for 3 hrs only? I used to soak overnight. Tried different ratios of rice:urad - 3:1 and 2"1 was never satisfied with the results. Want to try your version. Let me know 3 hrs soaking of idli rice is enough. Also should the batter be placed directly on the cloth. I mean no katoris or stand etc. Looks like the ball of batter is just placed on the cloth. Also please let me know from where did you buy the grinder. I use mixie/blender. Is it ok to grind in it.Please reply. Thanks for such detailed recipe. God Bless - Carol

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hi carol,

    Ya I soak only for three hours,3 hours is the minimum time and its very much enough for soaking. You can sure try it.
    I use cloth to line my idly plate moulds,you can see my idly pot here
    The batter is fluffy and light,its not definitely like chapathi dough..
    I bought the grinder in India its like this
    With mixie/blender the result will not be as good as grinder as far as I know.
    Next time, try adding cooked rice(if 3 : 1 ratio the add cooked rice also 1 part) U have to add while grinding the rice. This will sure work,do try and let me know.

  69. Hi Raji, This is my first comment to you. Your blog is very helpful and you are an excellent photographer.
    I am from Andhra Pradesh, presently in US. We usually make Idli's with Urad dal and Idli Ravva, which we get in stores. But the hotel idli's taste different, very tasty.I think they follow the procedure you posted. I will try this recipe next time. I have to agree this is a very use full post for beginners. I a have tried the maida burfi from your post. The taste was very good but I had some difficulties with sugar syrup. Hope I get used to make this , when to stop heating the sugar syrup.

  70. Hi,

    My idli batter doesn't raise in volume, it changes to yellow!?

    ReplyDelete
  71. I tried the idly with 3:1 ratio (no cooked rice). The idlis turned out ok but after getting cold, they became hard. I used Cuisinart food processor to grind. Also, as you mentioned I did not stir the batter while putting in mould and I steamed for around 12-15 minutes. The dosa and utthapam came out very nice with this batter. Is there something I can do to keep it soft even when it gets cold?

    ReplyDelete
  72. I am my kids are a total south indian food freaks, making idly with cloth lining is new to me, I am sure this would keep the idli soft and moist. I am going to try your version soon...thanks!

    wanted to knowwhether our regular mixer can be used in place of grinder shown in pics ??
    will it affect the softness of idly ??

  75. hey .. thanks a ton for such a detail illustration ..
    for me being a beginner ..nothing can get better than this .
    jus wanted to know whether its ok if i use regular mixer instead of grinder shown in the pic.
    thanks once again.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Regular mixer can be used. Try using chilled water while grinding urad dal. This prevents heating of the mixer. Use generous water even if u feel it getting watery. Stop and go frequently. Rice can be ground without any problem. Main thing is urad dal has to be a good quality one :)

  77. hi Raks,
    let me start by telling u that u r doing a fabulous job here for people like me who are not so good in cooking. its really a good idea with pics and all explanation done step by step.
    i just want to know the recipe of sambhar(its there with the idli). its looking so yummy... i couldnt find your sambhar recipe on the blog.. thnx and keep it up.

  78. Thank you :) I will post that recipe soon. Meanwhile, you can refer this one Tiffin sambar

    ReplyDelete
  79. HI Raks,
    My idlies are never white in colur...they are cream in colour...soft though...also my batter when fermented is light and fluffy...but not stiff like you have mentioned...it is too porous and I always have to mix it completely before making idlies...Where could I be going wrong? I am using a grinder.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Hi Sudha, looks like you are adding more of fenugreek seeds/ vendhayam. Also make sure not to grind for too long. If the grinder is getting too hot, then this could happen.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Thanks Raks, I am probabaly grinding for too long..The other day I ground urad dhal for 45 mts and Rice for 1 hr...I dont use fenugreek seeds at all...Thanks for the reply though:)

  88. hi Raji,
    Thank you for posting this.
    I am a first timer in making this batter, so this recipe is a great help.

    Couple of qs (for now! :) ):

    Can I use mixie to make the batter?
    To purchase idli batter grinder (table-top, which brand is good - in Chennai, or what to look for while purchasing the same?)
    Appreciate any inputs.
    thanks,

    1. You can use mixie, the key is to not grind too much at a time and heat up the jar. You can use ice water while grinding the urad dal for this.

      Ultra is too good. You can buy Ultra pride :)

  89. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I do not have an idli batter grinder/mixie. Can I try grinding with food processor instead?

    1. Does the food processor grinds smoothly?then only you will get volume. Otherwise I am afraid you cant.

    2. Never grinded any liquid item so far in food processor. I will have to test it out in which case. :) Thanks for your reply.

    Replies
    1. Idli rice is parboiled rice but not the one we use to eat, its meant for making idli alone, eating rice may not give you god results. In Tamilnadu we get idli rice in all the grocery stores.

  92. Hi Raji,

    Wonderful post for beginners like me...I made idli with the proportion what you have mentioned..Idli's were soft but its not getting raised like yours...Its flat..I used IR20 idli rice.Where could I have gone wrong? I live in chennai,which is totally a new city for me..Could you pls suggest me a specific brand of idli rice and urad dhall for making idli..Pls help me.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Viji, Looks like either your urad dal is more or water you are adding while grinding is more. Try to experiment with these two, try reducing any one at a time and fix your proportion. I think any idli rice will be okay.
      Try buying from local shops and ask for new urad dal, they will have the best.

  93. Hi raks i live in Singapore...i usually bring urad dal from India...but this time i thought i can manage buying here...but the urad dal i got here is so bad...can you plz help me out and let me know in which grocery shop you buy urad dal and idly rice.

    1. Was your urad dal fluffy and white? Depends on that as well as the rice quality. Even if methi seeds is more, then too it turns yellow. Mainly the if urad dal doesnt give you volume, then the idlies will be dull in colour

  95. Hi,
    What is idly rice

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can ask for idli rice in south Indian groceries, it is parboiled rice, which is different from eating rice. Short and stout.

  97. Hi Raji,

    Thanks for the recipe. The idlies are not white and become soggy on top while steaming. They are soft but having a slimy top. I am using a regular mould for steaming without using a cloth. Please reply :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you have a slimy top, I know exactly what the problem is. When you steam the idlies, the idli plates should be arranged in such a way that the hole part of the upper plate should overlay the idli part on the lower plate. While steaming, the water drops in the idlies and thats y you get slimy top. Do you use cloth? if so you can use another cloth to cover the idlies. If not, just arrange the idli plates in the way i have told, sure water wont drop over the idlies while steaming and you will not get slimy top for sure.

      Idli might turn yellow if urad dal quality is not good, or not enough water, or too much of fenugreek seeds.

      Hope I helped you a bit.

  104. Hi raks ,your idli receipe is superb ,just want to know how to ferment the batter in winters ,pls do reply,awaiting for your reply !

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Leave it inside the oven with oven light on. Or if you do not have oven, mix the batter in the grinder container itself and keep it covered. Of course u hav to take out the stone. If you are in very cold part of the world then you can keep it in grinder itself as the near by motar will be warm, it will help to ferment. If in places like india then just mix it in the grinder container and keep it away from the motor as it will overflow. Hope I am clear

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You should first dip the cloth in water then spread it over the idli plate. Keep the idli plate inside the pot only after water boils. Do not over cook, once cooked, sprinkle some water in the sides of the hot idli plate and invert it. Again sprinkle little water over the cloth (back of the idli covered with cloth) and then take out the idlies. it will come out soft.

  114. hi raks i have a different recipe for idly we use idly rava and urad dal. soak both ingredients separately grind urad dal to a fine pase and mix it with soaked and sqweed idly rava add salt and mix it and proceed for steaming idlies

    ReplyDelete
  115. Hi raks can u please tell the amount of salt u put exactly how much because when I made it first time the salt was too much and the second time the batter did not ferment at all I guess due to less salt?

  118. Hi chef, I enjoy reading your recipes as the are similar to my methods of cooking. I'm a Gujrati, born in Mumbai, living in U.K., married to srilankan tamil. 😅😂
    Just wanted to ask do you never use fruitsalt/Eno for cooking idlies..?? As we always do with little oil mixed in the batter just before each batch of steaming the idlies. Thanks.

  123. Hi Raks, I am having trouble making soft idlis recently. I tried multiple combinations and feel that the 3cup rice:1 cup urad dal:1 sp fenugreek works better.
    The idlis are soft when cooked, but once cool, it becomes like kali consistency. Any suggestions?

    1. Too much urad dal? or too much water while grinding urad dal may be. try reducing slightly urad dal or water and see.

  128. Hi, my problem is that I don't get a crispy golden brown dosa. It gets soggy and deep brown or just stays white. List of things I tried: 3:1 & 3:1.5 rice to urad dal ratio. Good quality urad dal but not udhayam (I don't get it here).I use a non-stick tawa. Added oil while making dosa but didn't help much.I use mixie. Batter ferments well; idlys turn out soft but not in white color. So 2 problems 1. idly becomes dull white in color 2. dosa becomes soggy, more like a soft cloth. please help.

  129. Is your batter light and fluffy or heavy? Use more water while grinding. Especially while grinding urad dal. Don't worry if the batter is on runny side.as it ferments ot should be fine next day...
