I love idlis in fact I used to ask my mom to prepare it everyday either that or puttu .SO every single day of life I had idli or puttu …or sometimes dosaiAfter coming to US my idli troubles started , first of all since I was not used to domestic work ,even cleaning the grinder was a big issue , my Dh had the ones which we can’t tilt I think Amrutha ,it was not counter top .
Even if I did do the idli it was hard as stone …so I stopped preparing them.If once in a while the idli came out well I had to prepare chutney … so more work ..no idli podi was allowed since Dh is health conscious .
Slowly I switched to cereals but when that caused a huge weight gain ..etc and I was diagnosed with PCOS ..the cereal was stopped too…right now its oatmeal.
WHen we had gone to DC my lovely new frnd prepared idli…soft as ..well idli…I ate 10 minimum every chance I got ..she gave me the proportions which surprisingly was the same one I was using before .SHe also gave me this box to store idli dough in.I forgot to mention I use this grinder now
This is how my idlis looked … :)…this is borrowed snap BTW..
