Idli batter recipe: A two-in-one South Indian Idli and Dosa Batter recipe for dosa filled with soft idlis and pores that can also be extended to paddoo or guliappa recipe. Originally the Idli Dosa batter is prepared using a mixer grinder compared to the traditional wet grinder and yields soft and spongy idli and dosa for breakfast.

Usually, the batter of dosa and idli is prepared separately, but it solves the batter problem and serves for both. Idli dosa batter recipe is prepared with idli rice, which can be used to prepare idli with soft and spongy dosa.

Being a South Indian, Dosa and Idli are very common in our family for our daily breakfast. My husband is particularly a big fan of idli and dosa and according to him there is no other breakfast recipe that is as healthy and tasty as these. Basically both the dishes are prepared using unheated steam without much spices and oil content. 

However, preparing separate idli and dosa is a big challenge for me. So I prepare Idli Dosa Batter which has a 3: 1 Idli Rice and Urad Dal ratio which makes it easy to use for both. I also tried to prepare a crisp and thin dosa with it but to no avail. It is always better to prepare thick and soft dosa like dosa or sponge dosa.

Also, some important tips and suggestions for an ideal and idli dosa batter recipe in a mixer grinder. First, prepare the idli batter in batches in a mixer grinder and do not overload the mixie. Also, grind the rice and urad dal separately and then mix it in a bowl. Secondly, after fermenting the batter, remove only the required amount of batter.
