Bajra-Kodo Idli

Bajra-Kodo Idli

Picked up some bajra (సజ్జలు | pearl millet) from the Farmers’ Market and thought, let’s see if we can make idlis with these too. Since it was my first time trying it I used some millet as well.  I didn’t use any rice.  My proportions were:

1 cup bajra (సజ్జలు)
1 cup kodo millet (ఆరికలు)
1 cup urad (మినువులు)

Soak in water for 8 hours, grind to a smooth batter, allow to rise overnight, add 1/2 tsp salt and make idlis as usual.

I will take pictures next time I make bajra idli and update this page with step-by-step instructions.   Meanwhile,  for a detailed description and pictures of the process see any of the following:

Bajra from Paryavaran Mitra (at Farmers' Market) and Urad from EcoFresh (via Chembur)
