By now, regular readers will all be knowing my passion for food, and particularly for eating healthy. I love cooking healthy and nutritious food at home and my pantry is always stocked with a variety of healthy food. I always have brown rice, millets, poha, cracked wheat, organic palm jaggery, dry fruits, nuts, seeds (flax seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds)etc at home. When you eat healthy food, you get a feeling of happiness and satisfaction. Many have the opinion that healthy foods are boring but they can be made delicious and interesting. These brown rice idlis were very soft and delicious and we all loved it very much. Today we will learn how to make brown rice idli following our easy recipe.
|Brown rice idli with chutney|
Wash and soak brown rice and idly rice together for 4-5 hours.
Wash and soak urad dal and fenugreek seeds together for 4-5 hours.
Grind urad dal until light and fluffy adding water now and then. Add water little at a time every 10 minutes. I usually grind urad dal for 35-40 minutes. Remove it from the grinder/mixie and keep it aside. Check out my detailed post on idli batter recipe.
Grind brown rice + idly rice to a slightly coarse paste adding water from time to time.
Mix both the urad dal batter and rice batter together with your hands adding salt. The batter should not be thick nor runny. Leave it to ferment for 7-8 hours. Our brown rice idli batter is ready.
Mix the batter well, pour the brown rice idli batter into idli molds and steam cook for 15 minutes.Once cooked remove from mold. Repeat the same process for the rest of the batter. Check out more details in my soft idli recipe post.
