This easy-to-make Multiflour Idli has a fabulous, rustic flavour and interesting texture that you will enjoy thoroughly at any time during gestation.

A batter of soaked and ground urad dal combined with wholesome flours like bajra, nachni, etc., gives us perfect idlis that replenish your calcium stores and give you good quality protein as well. Enjoy these idlis hot and fresh, right out of the steamer, because they might get a little hard upon cooling.

Really happy with the result, mine turned out to be fluffy and super soft from inside( softer than rice idli, must be coz of ragi). I had kept it out longer for fermentation, almost 24hrs(actually I sort of forgot about it and it overflowed). Also just before making the idlis I added a little eno. Just something I was taught by my mother in law. ^_^ It''s healthy and tastes even better with sambar. Thank you for this wonderful recipe.

Assorted flours used to make idli which are a great option for breakfast. They are not as fluffy as the rice and urad dal idli but I enjoyed them with piping hot sambhar.
