Last Minute Soft Idlis

Box Idli

Idlis are steamed breads made of ground dal and rice that has been fermented and are usually served for breakfast with various chutneys (especially coconut) and sambar. We keep a box of Gits Rice Idli Mix because they come out so fluffy and are so quick to make!

Try them with this sambar or this sambar!

1 big box dried idli mix (500gm)
3 3/4 cup water
2 teaspoons enu (fruit salt, it makes the idlis really fluffy!)

  1. Mix idli mix with water and let sit for 10 minutes.
  2. Boil an inch of water in a pressure cooker.
  3. Grease idli stand with a little oil.
  4. Add enu to idli batter and stir.
  5. Ladle idli batter into idli stand, put into pressure cooker without the weight (so it will steam).
  6. Cook for 15 minutes.
  7. Let sit for a few minutes to let the steam exit so the idlis don’t get wet.
  8. Serve with sambhar and coconut chutney. Mmm!
