Thatte Idli / Plate Idli Recipe

Posted by Veena Karanth at 02:21:00
In Kannada language, the word thatte means plate, so, the idli prepared using a plate as a mould is called thatte idli or plate idli. It goes on well with Bombay sagu, or coconut chutney. I have published many other idlis in my previous posts like button idli, idli sambarrava idli and many more and so this is one more addition to the menu. Here, we prepare a batter with a different measurement of rice and urad dal (black gram ).

The time required to prepare this idli is around 2 hours of soaking, 30 minutes of grinding, 8 hours of fermentation of the batter and 10 minutes of steaming the idlis. You can yield around 22 idlis out of this measurement.

KitchenMasti Points.

  1. Grinding the ingredients for 30 minutes in a grinder is important for the idlis to turn out softer.
  2. You can grind it in the mixer also but the texture may not be up to mark.
  3. You can avoid adding the cooked rice but increase the poha ( flattened rice ) by 1 / 4 cup. 
  4. Do not the fill the batter till the brim of the plates.
