Method To Make Sabbakki Idly:

  • Wash rice rava and sago thoroughly.
  • Now, take a big bowl and add rice and sago in it.
  • Add curds and mix properly. Close the lid.
  • Allow it to ferment for 8 - 9 hours.
  • After 8 - 9 hours, when we are ready to cook the idlis, add water and dilute the batter to the idli batter consistency.
  • Heat a small pan with ghee in it.
  • Add mustard, broken red chilli, urad dal, cashew pieces and curry leaves in it.
  • When it starts spluttering, transfer this seasoning into the rice and sago batter.
  • Add chopped coriander leaves, baking soda and salt into it. Stir it well.
  • Now, heat a idli cooker with water in it.
  • Meanwhile, grease all the idli moulds and pour the batter into it.
  • Steam it for 7 - 8 minutes.
  • Now, your piping hot steamed sago idlis are ready to be served!!!!

Kitchenmasti Points:

  1. Since the rice rava and sago absorbs the curds which is soaked overnight to get fermented, water is added the next morning accordingly to get the ideal idli batter consistency.
  2. Upma rava / semolina can be substituted for rice rava wherein you have to fry the rava for few seconds.
  3. Adding green chilli is optional.
  4. You can fry the seasoning in coconut oil instead of ghee.
