Hi Rewa Chadha...South India has a variety of rice which is used for rice flour. In my experience Surti Kolam,Sona Mansuri and Shakkar Cheeni varieties produce the best rice flour. It is a tedious process of soaking the rice,drying it on a cloth and then powdering it which yields a very soft and pliable powder.For Modaks use basmati rice for the wonderful aroma while steaming! Traditional idli making uses 2 kinds of rice - Boiled rice (or sela chawal) and any other rice like Kolam or u can use the Idli rice which is available in markets these days.
