furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the aval idli recipe. firstly, i have used thin poha which is easy to use and get dissolved when mixed with moisture or curd. you may also use thick or medium poha, but you may need to soak in and ground it in a mixer grinder. secondly, i would heavily recommend using sour curd or yoghurt which not only adds the sour taste to the idli but also helps to hasten the fermentation reaction. if you do not have it, you may add 2-3 tsp of lemon juice to make it sour. lastly, with this post, i have shown how to make a mint and coriander coconut chutney. i feel this combination is ideal, to begin with, but you may select any choice of spicy chutney or sambar to go with. with chutney, i would heavily recommend using watery chutney so that it can be easily consumed.
