Urad dal - 1 cup
Raw rice - 3 cup
Fenugreek seeds - 1 tsp
Salt - To taste

Soak raw rice in water overnight. Drain the water and wash rice. Keep aside.
Soak urad dal in just enough water for 3-4 hours.
Drain the water and keep the drained water aside.
Grind the dal into silky smooth batter to thick consistency, add the drained water kept aside, as needed to the batter,while grinding.
Remove the batter in a vessel.
Again grind rice to light coarse paste( thick consistency) and mix it with urad batter with hands(clean ones... this helps fermentation).
Keep it covered, for overnight fermentation (at least 6hours) in a warm place and the batter will be doubled in volume. Stir in salt. Consistency of batter must be medium.
Grease the idli maker plates with the oil and fill with the idli batter. Steam, covered for about 10 minutes.
