These super-soft idlis are made with a combination of readymade idli rava and cooked rice along with fluffy, wet-ground urad dal.


It is easier to prepare this idli compared to the traditional one, as you need to soak wet-grind only the urad dal. It is also a relatively foolproof method that is sure to yield appetizingly white, bouncy soft idlis.


However, since it makes use of cooked rice, it is not advisable to keep the fermented batter for more than a day or two.

  6. Repeat with the remaining batter to make more idlis.
  7. Allow the idlis to cool slightly and demould them.
