Aval Idly | Poha Idly


Every day when i wake up i think from today i have to blog daily. But i'm not able to do that because my lil one always wants me to with him to play or nap .He nap only for Half an hour and he will awake for small sounds. So i have to cook n do my household activities within that half an hour without making noise(really its a tough job).My stories apart lets come back to recipe.


Most of people in south India take idly as breakfast and it is first food baby. As i south Indian i'm also started giving Idly as a first food to my lil one. So i wanted to prepare a soft idly. One of my friend told if you add a fistful of aval | Poha while grinding idly batter you can make soft idlies. Immediately i implemented it and the idly came out as super soft.



Idly Rice                      1 cup

Urad Dal                      1/2 cup

Aval | Poha                  1/4 cup or Fistful


Fenugreek Seeds           1 tsp


Wash and Soak rice and urad dal with fenugreek seeds in separate containers for atleast 5-6 hours.

Grind the rice along with Aval / Poha to smooth paste by adding water.

Grind the urad dal to fine paste.

Mix both rice and dal with salt. Ferment for over night

Steam it in a Idly mold. The Soft Idlies are ready to serve.
