    Super soft idly

    Ingredients:

    4 cup raw rice,
    1 cup udadh dal
    2 -21/2 cups poha ( if you use thick variety use 1 1/2 cups, if it is thin use 2 2 1/2 cups )
    one pinch cooking soda
    Salt

    Method:

    soak rice and udath in a vessal for about 3-4 hours.
    while grinding wash and soak 'poha' and squeeze it .
    grind rice and dal.
    Mix with soaked 'poha' and add salt + one pinch of cooking soda:)
    allow it to ferment, then make idly as usual :)

    Note: "Poha" means "Aval" in Tamil and "Beaten Rice" in English :)
