Idli Recipe Steps

    1. While making Idli, add salt to batter as per your taste. If your batter seems to be much thicker then add little water to it, batter should be thick but smooth.
    2. Now take Idli stand and apply some refined oil to it so that our Idli didn’t stick to it while steaming. Now fill Idli stand with batter, fill it almost full. Assemble all sections of Idli stand and close its top nob. If you want you can add some herbs or finely chopped vegetable to your idli for some creativity in your cooking.
    3. Put half glass of water in a pressure cooker, and put a metallic stand in it which have holes. But if you don’t have that type of stand then don’t add batter in lower section idli stand. This is all because of preventing idli from water contact.
    4. So insert idli stand to pressure cooker, and close the cooker. Don’t put whistle on cooker and put it on high flame for 15 minutes.
    5. After 15 minutes open cooker and check idli by inserting a tooth pick stick, if it is clean then take out the idli stand. Do that carefully and take it out with any cloth or kitchen gloves in hand. Open its top nob and separate all sections of idli stand.
    6. Now with the help of knife take idli out from corners. Move your knife in a circle flow and your soft and spongy idli will be in your hands easily.
Indian Chef
I'm a food blogger, food photographer and organic gardener based out of India. I enjoy cooking for my family using fresh produce from my vegetable garden. I love to try out various cuisines and perfect my cooking skills. I've always loved writing, so writing is something that I've always done. Food, on the other hand was something I definitely grew into. As a kid, I was the pickiest eater you could imagine. But eventually food started tasting good to me and it became something that I associate deeply with happy memories. My food blog Indian Food Pedia is a humble attempt at sharing my passion for all things food and you will definitely find a lot of Andhra flavor in this space, home-cooked meals I prepare for my family using farm fresh produce from my organic garden and our nearest farmer’s market. I have no formal training in food photography. Taking images of food is a learning process, a creative outlet for me and an enjoyable one at that.
