TIPS:

1. Idla batter will rise like dosa batter. After 12 hours check the batter & if it has not risen allow it to rest for 1-2 hours more. It will depend on weather & humidity conditions. In hot humid summer it can rise sooner.
2. Before preparing batter for steaming ensure you keep boiling water ready in steamer.
3. For steaming idla I have taken 2 plates of 8.5". If it is smaller plate you can make it in 3 or 4 plates.
4. Check idla is done or not by putting a knife or toothpick in plate & if it comes out clean it is done.
5. After pouring hot tempering over idla allow it cool down before serving as hot oil can burn skin.
