Flattened rice idlis
1. Four cups buttermilk (homemade or store bought). Leftover raita or kadhi can also be used.
2. Two cups flattened rice (washed 3-4 times). Leftover poha can be used too.
3. One tbsp rice flour
4. Four tbsp semolina (sooji)
5. Salt as per taste
6. Water if needed
7. Oil to grease idli trays
Mix buttermilk and flattened rice and pulse in a food processor. When they form a smooth paste, add the rest of the ingredients. Add salt if needed and more water if needed. Check consistency. The batter shouldn’t be very runny but not too thick also. Grease idli tray moulds with oil and pour batter into them. If using a pressure cooker don’t apply the whistle and pour 10 oz water in the cooker along with the grid before you put the idli stand in it. Pressure cook on high heat for 10 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before taking out the idlis from the trays. If using a microwave, microwave on high for 2-3 minutes. Let rest for one minute before taking out idlis. Pressure cooker idli stand or microwaveable idli stand both are fine. Serve with sambhar and garlic chutney. This can also be enjoyed with rasam or with tomato ketchup.
