Kanchipuram idli

A healthy steamed cake is very soft and fluffy to eat and can be taken as a breakfast with sambhar or idli milagai podi.The ghee with seasoning gives nice aroma to idli.


  • Idli rice - 1 cup
  • Raw rice - 1 cup
  • Urad dal - 1 cup
  • Salt - as per taste

For tempering:

  • Mustard - 1 tsp
  • Urad dal - 2 tsp
  • Channa dal - 2 tsp
  • Cashews - 2 tsp
  • Pepper - 2 tsp
  • Grated ginger - 2 tsp
  • Curry leaves - 8
  • Coriander leaves - 1 tsp
  • Sesame oil + Ghee - 2 tbsp


Soak rice and dal separately for 2 hrs. Grind the urad dal into smooth paste, and rice very coarsely. Mix them with salt and ferment it for 8 hrs or overnight.

In a pan, add oil and ghee and add the ingredients given for tempering in the same order, mix in the batter.

Grease the pan with oil and pour the batter and cook for 20 to 30 mins on a low flame. Cut into any desired shape. You can prepare this idli with small bowls and glasses too.
