Super soft idlis made with a combination of broken and beaten rice, the Poha Idli is also relatively convenient to make compared to the traditional idli because idli rawa is used instead of whole idli rice. This helps you make the batter quicker and also ensures a perfect consistency, without having to worry about how coarse the rice has to be ground. Remember to grind the poha-rice mix and the soaked urad separately, to get perfect idlis. Enjoy hot and fresh with your favourite chutney and sambhar.
