2 cups Rice
1 cup Urad Daal (white)
1 1/2 tblsp Salt
A pinch of Baking Soda
Oil for greasing

How to make idli:

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 idli 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.
Serve them with sambhar or chutney or mutter(peas) curry(ghughuni).
