Idli is one of the popular South Indian breakfast recipe.It is a  nutritious item with no oil.Idlis are usually served with sambar and chutney.
 Idli rice                     -21/2 cups
(If you dont get Idli rice,we can use any other parboiled rice)
Urad dal                    -1 cup
Cooked rice              -1/2 cup
Salt                           -1 tsp
Fennu greek seeds    -1tsp
Soak rice and dal separately in water for 4-5 hours.Grind it with enough water to get a thick batter in a blender or a grinder.Pour it in a big vessel and keep it for fermentation for 9-10 hours depending upon the weather.Before making idlis,stir the batter with enough salt.Grease the idli mould with little oil and pour the batter.Steam it for10 minutes.Remove the idlis from the mould with a wet spatula.Serve with sambar or chutney.

For making Coriander Chutney:

    Coriander leaves  -1 cup
    Grated coconut    -1 cup
    Red chillies          -5
    Ginger                 - a small piece
    Tamarind             -a small piece
    Salt  as required
    Musturd seeds    -1/4 tsp
    Broken Urad dal -1/2 tsp
    Oil                      -1tsp
       Grind together all the ingredients from corainder leaves to salt in a blender.Heat oil in a small frying pan.Splutter musturd seeds,then broken urad dal.When urad dal becomes light brown in colour,pour the mix from the blender to this and switch off the stove.
  For feeding kids with idli ,we can try this trick which i learned from my aunt.What she do is:
Cut one idli into 2 or 3 pieces.Then decorate it with some chutney .See!!!  It looks like our eyes !!!Now we can see the kids excitment to have this IDLI FACE.
