In my last post ,i share how to ferment idli batter using instant pot HOW TO FERMENT THE BATTER IN INSTANT POT?
It is a savory rice cake, made by steaming a batter consisting of lentils and rice. This recipe makes steamed Idli in the Instant Pot.
I have a non stock idli mold ,if you have a Stainless steel or Aluminum mold then first grease your mold with ghee or oil. Then add small amount of batter in each mold. While you are doing this, add water to the instant pot and let it boil in Sautemode.Or you can add boiling water in inner pot and do rest same way.
1 .5 or 2 cup Water
Oil /ghee for Greasing
Add water to the instant pot and heat it in saute mode until it boils.
While the water is heating, grease the idli molds with oil or ghee. Add small amount of batter in each mold.
Place the idli stand in the instant pot and cover the lid and cook it in steam mode High in venting position.
The thing to note is that the time on the instant pot does not work in the venting position, so you have to use a separate timer.
In 12 minutes, the idli will be ready.
You can make multiple batches of idli with the same batter.
Idli’s can be served with sambar Sambar And Green Coconut chutney Green Coconut Chutney and peanut chutney Peanut Chutney
