Idli is a traditional breakfast in South Indian households, especially in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala too where it is a popular breakfast. It is a savory cake that is made out of rice and dehusked black gram i.e. urid dal famous in India and neighbouring countries like Sri Lanka. The batter is fermented and is put into the mould, then steam cooked. Served along with sambhar and coconut chutney. The fermentation process breaks down the starches so that they are more readily metabolised by the body.
This dish can be served as breakfast, and at dinner time too. In fact it is any time favourite of Indians.
You can grind the rice and dal once in a week and keep in fridge for 3 - 4 days consumption.
