Butter Idli

Ingredients to make Butter Idli

  • 4 cups rice
  • 2 cups Poha
  • 1 1/2 cups butter

How to make Butter Idli

  1. Soak rice in sufficient water for minimum 12 hours. For 10-15 minutes soak poha. Grind to a fine paste. Add butter and mix well.
  2. Ferment for at least 1 day (it is all bubbly), like a mild soda. I ground my batter at around 10 am and it was all done by about 5.30 pm, for its hot now. In winter it will need some more time. Add salt and stir.
  3. Grease an idli mould and fill with batter about a ladle is enough, but you could also use a vessel like I have used, in this case pour about 1/4 inch height or a little about the width of your finger.
  4. Put in a pressure cooker and steam for 15-20 minutes. During steaming do not use the weight.
