Corn Meal - 11/2cups
Urad dal -1/2 cup
Methi seeds - 1teaspoon
Wash the corn meal gently and soak it for 3-4 hours.
Combine urad dal and methi seeds, rinse them and soak for 3-4 hours.
Grind the urad dal and methi seeds with enough water. (as you do for making idli batter). Finally add the soaked corn meal(with out water), and grind for a couple of minutes.
Add enough salt, keep it aside over night or at least 8 hours. (Time may vary according to the temperature in your area)
Fermented batter will look like this..light n fluffy, with lot of air bubbles. Heat water in the steamer, pour the batter in the greased idli plates, fill the batter and steam it for 8 to 10 minutes.
Corn meal idli is ready to serve. I have used my egg poacher to make the idlies n got these cute shapes. :) These idlies will be more or less has the same texture and taste as Rava Idlies. Serve them with your choice of chutney/sambar/ idli podi.
