Grind all the ingredients separately and then mix them nicely .

the batter should be thick at this stage so use less water while grinding.

Step 4

After 12 hours or so, you will see that the batter has fermented and increased in
volume. beat it nicely , and add salt as per taste.

For idli the batter should not be runny. For dosa you may need to add water and give it a gentle mix.

First batch of idli and first dosa should be enough to guide you regarding the
consistency.

Step 5

Oil the idli moulds/ plates and pour the batter.

Steam for 6- 7 minutes .

Insert a thin bladed knife or a toothpick in the center , if it comes out clean then you can spoon out the idlis. Or else steam it for another 2 -3 minutes.

Done.
