¼ cup black gram/urad dal

Salt, as required

Preparation

Wash and soak the rice for two hours

Soak split yellow gram and black gram together for two hours

Grind the lentils until smooth and frothy

Grind rice to a grainy consistency

Mix the ground lentils and rice together, and add salt

Allow the batter to ferment for 15-20 hours

Pour the batter to the greased idli plates and steam cook until done

Serve hot with green chutney or chutney powder
