Idly and Dosa

How  to make perfect Idly and Dosai  Batter at home:


Par boiled idly Rice 5 cups(for some rice u can use 3 cups)
Whole Urad dal (ulundhu) without skin 1 cup
Fenugreek seed 1 tbsp.
Salt  to taste.
The ratio of rice and urad dal is 3:1 or 5:1

Soak rice and urad dal seperately with fenugreek seeds in water for atleast 5 - 6  hours..

Then drain water from the urad dal and keep the water aside for sprinkle while grinding.Sprinkle water in between at regular intervals and grind it for 40 minutes.first grind urad dal and collect it in a container after correct soft fluffy consistency.
Then drain water from the rice and grind it.Rice batter is little thicker than the urad dal batter.

take  both rice  batter and urad dal ,add  salt and mix well  in a big container.Keep the container in a warm place for ferment for atleast 12 hours(1/2 day).After 12 hours the batter will raised and come to the top of the container.
