Kushboo Idly




Not sure from where this idly is originated,must be either madurai or chettinad..it is more popular in southern tamilnadu, specially in weddings...the mega size idlies are must in the menu...I remember my athai (mom's SIL) says "we can pinch all the sides and eat "..I tried it with this chettinad kara kulambu,and ellu milagai podi(divine)...




Kushboo Idly
Ingredients
Raw Rice-4 cups
Urad Dal-1 cup
Javvarisi/Sago-1/2 cup
Salt-1 tbsp
Cooking  Soda-1/2 tsp
Method
1.Wash rice and urad dal and soak it togeher  for 12 hrs(overnight)
2.Wash Sago and soak with 3-4 cups of water for 12 hrs(overnight)
3.Grind them all-together into smooth batter and rest it to ferment for 8 hours
4.Mix the baking soda with water and blend it with fermented batter
5.Use idli maker and steam it for 8-10 minutes
6.Remove the lid and rest it again for 4-5 minutes ,scoop the idlis out
I skipped using cooking soda...I made the batter how we usually make for idlies...So definitely not too thick nor too thin.....

Wishing  best wishes who are fasting tomorrow for varalakshmi vratham...So,here is the recipe to prepare amazing feast to gorge in after the fast...Sabudana is the best ingredient that will easily digests and also it helps to bounce back the energy sooner than other food.. So make some sabudana kheer/khichdi or this idly and Enjoy :)
