Preparation time 15 minutes
Cooking time 5 minutes
Serves 2 -3 people.
1 Cup Semolina (Sooji )
1 Cup Yoghurt (Dahi )
1 teaspoon Soda Bicarbonate (You can alternatively use ENO)
1 teaspoon Salt
Oil for greasing the moulds.
In a bowl, mix the Semolina and yoghurt to form a smooth paste. You may add a little water if the mixture isn’t getting properly mixed.(this depends on the quality of yoghurt being used). Now add salt and Eno and let the batter sit for 5 minutes. It should look like the picture given alongside.
In the Idli pot add water and grease the idli tray. Cover it for 3 minutes so that steam starts to build up. Add 1 tbsp of this mixture in the mould and put it in the idli pot. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes.
Serve hot with sambhar and chutney or use it as a quick snack.
TIP : Let it rest for 5 minutes and use only the tip of the knife to demould.
As you may break the idli elsewise.
