  • Batter consistency ,The batter should not be runny or too thick. Think more like a free flowing pancake batter.

  • To make sure that the idli is cooked, insert a toothpick in the idlis. If the batter comes out clean, then the idli has been properly cooked.

  • For more fiber, use brown rice instead of white rice - brown rice does create a grainier texture and turns idlis tan rather than their usual white color.

  • In boiler/cooker ,Water should not touch idli pans plate otherwise idlis on lower plate may become soggy.

  • If you are using pressure cooker do not forget to remove the weight.

  • If your adding baking soda,after adding baking soda do not let it sit for more time.add eno salt/baking soda before cooking only, If your cooking idlis in two batches make two different bowls batter and make half part of eno salt(½ tbsp) add half part in 1st batch and add half part to second batch.
