Fluffy Idli

Idli is a soft, fluffy steamed pancake made of fermented rice and lentil (dal) batter. The rice and lentils are soaked, ground, fermented and then prepared by steaming the batter. Idlis are one of the healthiest protein packed savory breakfasts from the South Indian cuisine. If I can make these fluffy white idlis, anyone can do it. I did not grow up eating this delicious, savory breakfast but have come to enjoy it as if I did grow up in South India. My husband volunteers me to make this breakfast for all our Indian friends and others because it's as authentic as it gets. I wind up giving out my tips and tricks on how to prepare.
