Idli rava (rice rava) -- 2 Cups
Split Black lentil (Urad Dal) -- 1 cup
Salt to taste
Wash and soak lentil for around 6-8 hours.
If the fine flour is present in rava it will make the idli sticky. So add rava in a vessel and carefully wash it.
Now grind the lentil to a paste. Don't make it too smooth paste. But it shouls not be coarse too.
Mix this ground lentil paste with the rava and leave it in a warm place overnight for fermentation.
Next morning mix salt and pour it in the idli molds. Steam it on medium heat for 15-20 minutes.
Serve hot with chutney and sambhar.
