BARLEY IDLI


BARLEY IDLI

BARLEY - Barley is a great source of dietary fiber and actually contains both soluble and insoluble fiber. It is extremely nutritious and provides energy for the body.It reduces the inflammation of the stomach and expels toxins from the body.Barley is a must in the diet of health conscious people and it would make perfect sense to incorporate this tasty food item in our day-to-day eating patterns.

Barley Idli - Idli is a popular South Indian Breakfast item. Make these Idli's even more healthier by adding Barley . Serve hot with sambar or chutney of your choice

For this recipe you need

2 cups of parboiled (Idli)  rice
2 cups of barley
1 cup of Whole Urad dal
1/2 tsp. of fenugreek seeds
Salt

PREPARATION

Wash and soak the rice along with  barley for 3 to 4 hrs.

Wash and soak the urad dal for 3 to 4 hrs. 

First grind urad dal along with fenugreek.While grinding keep sprinkling water at regular intervals. The consistency of the batter should be very soft and fluffy. Remove the batter from the grinder and keep it aside.

Now grind the rice with barley to a smooth paste.

Mix both the batters along with salt, cover and keep aside overnight to ferment for
 10 -12 hrs.

Next day the batter would have raised 2 inches high with tiny bubbles. 

Pour a laddleful of batter in  idli tray and steam cook for 10 -15 mins. 

Soft and Healthy Barley Idli's are ready to be served.......


Serve it hot with any chuthey of your choice or with sambar and 
 enjoy :)

Note :

The quality of urad dal, and the way you grind it, are the two most important things to be noted .

Don't add too much of water while grinding both urad dal and rice, always sprinkle water at regular intervals.

Don't remove the idli's immediately , from the moulds, wait for few minutes and then scoop out.

Dilute the batter, and start preparing dosa's. Both idli's and Dosa's tasted very well.
