Thatte idly is one of the famous break fast item from Karnataka. I have tasted this in Mysore. I liked it very much. I got this recipe from one of my friend. Thatte idly is very spongy in texture. Sambar or any kind of chutney will go with this type of Idly.
Thatte means plate. Thatte idly means idly made in plates. There is a different idly plate and stand is available to make this idly. Since I didn’t have that plate,I tried to make the idly in banana leaf. I kept the banana leaf in a round shape vessel and pour the idly batter. I steam cooked the idly in normal idly vessel. We can use any round vessel to make this idly.
Preparation time approx 20 minutes.
Soaking time 5 to 6 hours.
Fermentation time 8 to 9 hours.
- 3 cups idly rice
- 1 cup raw rice.
- 3/4 cup Urad dhal
- 1/2 cup poha or cooked rice.
- salt to taste
Soak everything together. Grind everything adding water little by little.I used my wet grinder to grind the batter. We can use mixer grinder also to make the batter. Add salt at the end and grind.Remove from the grinder and put the batter in a big container.
Ferment for 8 hours
Before making add 1/2 tsp cooking soda. This will give more softness to the idly.
Take a round shape steel vessel. Keep the banana leaf inn side that. Pour 2 or 3 ladle full of batter. Steam cook.
