Method for making Idli batter:
  1. Wash and soak urad dal in 1½ cups of water for 3 to 4 hours.
  2. Wash and soak rice and avalakki in a different vessel for 3 to 4 hours.
  3. Grind the urad dal along with the soaked water into a fine paste.
  4. If you are using idli rava, add it to the urad dal paste and mix well in a big container.
  5. Then add the soaked avalakki and rice (if not using idli rava) after draining the water. Grind it to a coarse consistency.
  6. If you are using curd, add it now. Batter should not be too watery.
  7. Now transfer the batter to a big vessel and add salt. Mix well.
  8. Cover it with the lid and let it ferment overnight. To do so, warm the oven for a minute (don’t forget to turn off) and keep this in the oven.
