Ragi Idli

Ragi Idli

Ingredients needed:

  • Idli Rice (Idli pulungal arisi) - 1 cup,
  • Ragi flour/finger millet flour -2 cups,
  • Whole Urad dal (without skin) 1 cup
  • Fenugreek/ vendhayam -1/2 tsp
  • Salt as needed 


  • Heat water in an idli vessel or steamer. Mix the fermented ragi idli batter well and pour a ladle of batter into the idli molds and place it inside the steamer or idli cooker.
  • Steam cook for 10-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the idli comes out clean. Once done sprinkle water and remove from the mold after 2-3 minutes.
  • Serve hot with sambar or chutney of your choice.

Note -  The idlis were super soft and delicious without any baking soda or cooking soda. I suggest using the wet grinder to grind the batter.
