    Can I use parboiled rice for Idli/dosa ? I have been and used to idli rice. There is some sale in Indian groceries for parboiled rice and nowadays idli rice costing $ 26/20 pounds.

    Dear laxmi

    I tried parboiled rice once for Idli . My idli turned out to be a stone ( light light brown colour too).
    Some kinds of white rice can be used for Idli and here get LULU white rice and Idli is soft and nice.
    STill i have the parboiled rice with me ( nearly 2 Kgs).
    Can anyone give a receipe or any ideas to me??????

    I also used to use the Parboiled rice, but the idlis could be used for frisbies, they used to be that hard.
    I use Idli rice now and the idlis are super soft.

    As idli rice is costlier, I use them for idlis and for dosas I use the local store bought Parboiled rice
