-1 cup brown rice (To be washed and soaked overnight)
-2 tbsp poha/ beaten rice (optional)
-1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds
-2 tsp active yeast
-4 to 5 tbsp fresh coconut (grated)
Grind soaked rice, poha (beaten rice), fenugreek seeds, grated coconut with little water into a thick batter. (Thicker than than idli batter)
Dissolve yeast in 2-3 tsp of warm water and mix it with the batter. Let it ferment for 2 hours.
Add salt and mix it gently. Pour the batter into idli moulds and steam for 10-15 minutes. Make sure to just fill less than 1/2 the mould as the bater rises up quite a bit.
Serve along with coconut chutney or any Goan gravy accompaniments.
