Idli & Dosa.. the most popular south indian dish!

I made Idli and dosa for break fast today and Sambar and green coconut chutny to go with it.

I and my hubbyjaan likes dosas and both the kiddos prefer idlis.. sign..!! anyways i always have to make 2 dishes at home..

Here is my idli and dosa recipe.. i make the same batter for both.

  • Urad daal/Uzhunnu parippu - 3/4th cup
  • parboiled rice - 1 cup
  • methi/fenugreek seeds - 1 tsp
  • salt to taste
Soak all of them together for about 8-10hrs. And then grind into a fine paste adding water.

Keep the batter overnight.

Add salt in the morning.

If you want to make dosas - spread the batter on a tawa or griddle like a thin big pancake.

If you want to make idlis pour into idli pans and steam it up!

Both my idlis and dosas come out good on the first day.. But how ever the second day the idlis are not as good as the first one! i have to find out how to make them perfect now!

Hi Shifa, did not check your place for a long time. Lot of posts dear which I missed. Dosa and Idli look nice. They are our fav breakfast items.
