Idlis and Dosas are soo popular in India and now worldwide! I am sure many of you have your own “recipe” for making these lovely light and fluffy idlis and crispy dosas. I was in Dubai and learnt how to make them from my dearest friend Sheena Shahani…her batter was 2 cups of rice, one cup of 1 urad dal and 1 cup of boiled rice and a teaspoon of fenugreek seeds. The dal was soaked overnight with the fenugreek seeds and so was the raw rice. The next day all is blended well and the batter is left to ferment. This recipe is Dipa Mowanis recipe with her very own pics. I am soo grateful to Dipa for actually taking the trouble to take pics and send us her recipe!!! Thank you soo much Dipa my love:)

    Hi, here in England we get idly rice in Indian grocery stores.. ordinary or basmati rice can also be used but idly rice (parboiled short grain rice) is that much better.
