Idly And Dosa Batter Recipe

Idli and Dosa are a South Indian Dish that I learnt to make when my relative visited me a few years ago. Besides being a South Indian dish, Idli and Dosa have become popular all over India.

Idli is a savory cake made by steaming a batter made up of lentils and rice. Dosa is a crepe made with the same batter as Idli. Fermenting the batter can be tricky in colder conditions; to help you ferment, you can use the instant pot. Getting the batter can take time, and even natives have a learning curve to perfect their batter. With this guide, we hope to help you learn how to perfect the batter as quickly as possible.
