    big fan of ur site..you are doing amazing job,,,pls pls clearify my doubt..i followed ur proportion and i used parboiled rice only.my idly looks so good and spongy soft but it is sticky inside..steaming time is also correct.please help me…nobody giving me the right answer…….

      Nila, What do u mean by sticky? If its not cooked then you have to increase the steaming time, once done switch off. Do not scrap the idlis right away, let it sit in the idli pan for few minutes then they would easily slide when you scrape. Sometimes if the urad dal quality also makes the batter sticky. Trying grinding then with less water and make sure they are really fluffy after grinding. If they turn out rubbery while grinding thats one indication that you idlis going to be sticky. Thanks.

    Please help me with my doubt. I have whole urad dal at home..got it by mistake. Can i follow the same recipe with whole urad..or should i get broken one.
    Also, does the dosa texture depend on the pan we use..i have non stick and dosa kaalu too ( from India ).
    Please help panango.
