  • Soak rice for 15 minutes, drain water and dry on cloth in shade for 1/2 hour.
  • Prepare fine rawa out of it (send it to mill if possible) and keep it aside.
  • Soak urad dal for 4 hrs and grind it into fine paste.
  • Mix rawa, dal paste, chopped ginger and coconut gratings.
  • Dry fry jeera and pepper, prepare a course powder, and add this to above batter.
  • Heat 1 tbsp of oil/ ghee, add mustard seeds, hing and curry patta leaves.
  • When mustard seeds start to splutter, add urad dal, channa dal, red chillies and cashewnuts.
  • Fry till dal and nuts turn light golden colour and add this to the batter.
  • Add salt and mix the batter thoroughly and keep it overnight to ferment.
  • Next day morning, add curd and soda (if necessary, add water) and mix well.
  • Prepare idlis as usual (but it needs little more time to steam).
  • Serve kanchi idli with any chutney or sambar.
