Kanchipuram Idli

Ingredient For Kanchipuram Idli

  • Raw Rice – 1 cup
  • Idli Rice (or boiled rice) – 1 cup
  • Urad dal – 1 cup
  • Salt – as needed
  • Flavoring –
  • Crushed black pepper – 2 tsp
  • Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
  • Dry ginger powder – 1 tsp (or use fresh grated ginger)
  • Seasoning –
  • • Sesame oil – 1 tblsp
  • Urad dal (or channa dal) – 2 tsp
  • Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
  • Curry leaves – few (chopped)
  • Cashew nuts – 10 (broken)
  • Asafoetida – 1/4 tsp


  1. Soak both the rice together in one bowl. In another bowl soak the washed urad dal. Let it soak for at least 2 hours.
  2. First grind the soaked ural dal with little water to get a very light and fluffy batter.
  3. Next grind the rice to a coarse paste. Mix both the batter together with required salt.
  4. Let it rest in a warm place and ferment. It may take anywhere between 6 hours to 10 hours depending on the warmth.
  5. When the batter is fermented it will considerably increase in volume and have a sour fermented aroma.
  6. With the batter ready, mix the ginger, pepper and cumin with the batter. You can go ahead and make idlis at this stage.
  7. To make it extra tasty, make a seasoning of mustard seeds, curry leaves, cashew nuts, urad dal and asafoetida. Add this to the batter and mix well.
  8. Pour the batter in greased idli moulds or tumblers or a deep pan. Steam it for 15-20 minutes on high flame.
  9. Let it cool for about 5 minutes.
