Idli is a traditional breakfast in South India. They are made by steaming a batter consisting of fermented urad dal and rice. Beaten rice(poha) when added in little quantity adds a smooth texture to the idlis. This is my recipe of how I prepare it.

How to make Soft Rice Idlis (Karnataka Cuisine)
My Tip:If are staying in a cold place and it's difficult to get fermentation, I have a solution. Preheat your oven at 200F( do not preheat more than this). When the oven is preheated, turn off the oven and wait for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, put the container having the idli batter inside the oven with lid covered. The batter will get fermented in 3-4 hours.
