crispy idly

Dr.Rekha Shetty's picture

U may laugh on me saying teaching south Indian tamilian about idly. I know we like soft steamed idly .Dear friends one day i could not get my idly vessel(tondur)handy .so i tried to make this crispy idly which i tried when my nephew came from USA last diwali with family for dinner and everybody liked it .

Ingredients for four people
rice ...1 cup
udad daal(black gram)...2 and half cup
Method:
Soak both udad and rice separately for 3-4 hours .Grind udad to very fine and rice to little cores(not very fine).keep little thick as compare to steam idly . mix it and keep it for fermentation for 6-7 hours . Take round bottomed pan (kadai) which we normally use for frying things .Put 1 teaspoonful cooking oil preferably sesame oil .add on cup idly batter (dough) and keep it in very very low flame with the lid .Once the upper surface becomes dry reverse and put little oil from the side and keep it for another 4-5 minutes .serve hot with tomato sauce or samber or /and chutney .it goes very well with tea in the evening with company of our hero(I know u r laughing on my silly receipe yes na....)

Let's find a new name of Dr.Rekha's dish! Smile
Here is my guess; since this is more or less idly created as a dosa, I'd like to call this Doli! :0

C'mon Suguna, where is your guess? Smile
Doesn't this also remind us of another dish called "idliwich" which is a cross between idly and sandwich? Smile

Suguna Murugesan's picture

my guess is "idsa" suguna murugesan

Same pinch dear, my FIL has gone to kerala, so i am alone too but got to do some cleaning and all, so will be going after some time. Want to do few kolams also today, an octopus most likely dont know if it will be possible.

dibbutn's picture

I dont know pa if it will fit in my kitchen top, i am so confused actually whether to do it or not. I want two on it and it is too small to accommodate two.
