We call this idli as Kochige Gidde. Boiled rice idlis are good for breakfast and Snack in the evenings. No need of urid dal or fermentation for this type of idli.
I have used only boiled rice (boiled rice from South Canara), fresh grated coconut.
Kochige gidde can be prepared using raw rice and boiled rice also.
It is always better to soak boiled rice in boiling water, so that the rice will be well soaked and grinding becomes very easy. Fresh coconut adds to the taste and gidde taste yummy.
Let us see the recipe now :
Things NeededBoiled Rice : 2 Cups
Coconut : 1 Full cup ( 1/2 Coconut )
Salt : To taste
Method :1. Wash and soak boiled rice in boiling water for over night or 5 to 6 hours.
2. Grate coconut and keep it aside.
3. Drain all the water from soaked rice and grind it with grated coconut.Let it be like medium size rava consistency. Add required water while grinding.
4. Remove the batter from the mixi jar and add salt. Mix it well.
5. Wash idli plates and apply oil/ghee to each idli mould.
6. Mix the batter nicely and pour a ladle of idli batter to each idli mould.
8. Arrange the idli plates and keep it in the cooker and cook for 20 to 25 minutes.
10.Serve hot boiled rice idli with ghee/coconut oil and jaggery/any side dish of your choice.
Note :The batter need not be fermented. No need to use any urid dal. You can grind the batter at night and keep it in the fridge. Use of more coconut not only adds to the taste, it also helps the idli to be soft. These idlis are not that soft as normal urdi dal idlis.
Time : 5 to 6 Hours to soak the rice + 5 minutes to grind (Mixi jar) + 25 minutes to cook
Serves : 3 to 4 .
