Am hungry again after seeing ur post, beautiful platter.
Two types of par boiled rice are available: idli puzhungal arisi which is oval like wheat and the normal puzhungal arisi similar to the raw rice used for cooking (it also has thick and thin varieties).
Which would you advise as more appropriate for a combined idli + dosa batter. Please share your expertise.
No doubt my choice is idli puzhungal arisi -best for both idli and dosa
