Thanx to Mitchelle of food , football and baby blog sanna for the first time turned out perfect. Mitchelle has got a lovely website , please do check it out when time permits.
- 1 1/2 idli rice
- 1/2 cup basmati rice
- 1/4 cup beaten rice
- 1/4 cup +1 tbsp urad dal
- 2 tbsp sugar
- salt to taste
- 1 tsp yeast dissolved in 1 tbsp of warm water
- water for grinding
Soak idli rice, basmati rice, beaten rice and urad dal for 4 hours in water.
Wash the above with water and grind in grinder adding salt , sugar and water.
Pour the batter in a bowl and stir in the dissolved yeast.
Leave the batter overnight to ferment and rise.
To steam I used a idli vessel.
Grease them well with the oil. This is important since the sannas will stick.
Pour batter into them and steam for 10 minutes.
Take them out and leave it cool.
Once cooled run a knife around it to remove from the idli cups.
Sanna's go very well with chicken curry.
You can also have it with chutney.
