Idly Chutney

Ingredients to make Idly Chutney

  • 1 cup urad gota / whole
  • 3 cups idli rice or parboiled rice
  • 3 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chopped tomatoes
  • 1 large green chilly
  • few sprigs of mint
  • mustard seeds for tadka
  • oil for tempering

How to make Idly Chutney

  1. Soak the urad dal and rice in water for a couple of hours.
  2. Wet grind the urad dal first into a fine paste for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove the paste and keep in a large container.
  4. Now grind the rice for another 40 minutes - rice paste can be slightly coarse.
  5. Mix both and let this batter ferment in a warm place for 8-10 hours.
  6. Add salt before making idlis.
  7. The traditional steamer has holes in idli plates so we need a muslin cloth as base.
  8. Add the batter into the starter plates and steam for 10-15 minutes.
  9. For the chutney heat a pan add some oil and fry the tomatoes, mint and chillies.
  10. Add salt.
  11. Grind in a mixer well and temper with mustard seeds.

My Tip:

Adding salt after fermentation makes the idlis soft and fluffy.
