i have already shared the instant masala dosa mix and i was receiving good number of requests for instant idli mix recipe. this recipe is prepared very similar to it but with different proportions of rice and urad dal. also i have dry roasted the rice flour and urad dal before mixing it together. the whole idea of dry roasting is to remove all moisture for better longevity of the idli mix recipe. in addition i have added thin poha which i have also dry roasted and powdered before mixing it rice and urad dal combination. poha is added for the softness and fluffy idli’s. lastly, i have added eno fruit salt for hastening the fermentation process.

instant idli mixfurthermore, some important and key tips and recommendations for a perfect instant idli mix recipe. firstly, i have used fine rice flour in this recipe, which can be replaced with roasted and grounded idli rice too. also, this recipe can be extended further by adding idli rava in place of rice flour. secondly, i have added eno fruit salt to hasten the fermentation process, whereas baking soda can also be used as alternative. lastly, store the idli mix in a moisture free and refrigerate for long shelf life. if stored in a air tight container, it should long for minimum of 2 months.
